Important Parking Information

Washington Street Parking Lot

Information has been distributed by several methods over the last month explaining that the new Washington Street parking lot (old MAATI lot) was going to be renovated this summer. After much discussion about the overall parking picture for the fall semester, it has been decided to keep the renovated Washington Street lot a free lot for faculty, staff, and commuters until all phases of the Residential Revival have been completed. Once all phases are complete and machines installed, the parking lot will be designated Pay-by-Space.

The designation of the parking lot will be the same as it was on the old MATTI lot. Part of the parking lot will be designated Faculty and Staff and the other portion of the lot will be designated Faculty, Staff, and Commuter. When the lot is reopened after renovation, the parking lot signage will reflect the parking designations.

This parking lot is scheduled for renovation beginning on June 9, 2008. You may continue to park on this lot until it has been blocked off.

Parking Meter Consolidation

During the summer months many of the parking meters across campus will be consolidated into specific parking lots. The consolidation will result in no lost spaces; the number of spaces for each designation will remain the same.

Parking Garage

All reserved parking spaces in the garage will be moved to the first and second levels of the garage. This means that all reserved parking spaces will be under roof. This is being undertaken for two reasons.

  1. This will eliminate one waiting list for those parking on the top deck waiting to move undercover.
  2. The reorganization will allow the grounds department to clean the top deck off in the early morning hours when we have accumulations of snow.

Parking services is going to attempt to give each person who currently has a parking space under cover the chance to select a new space under cover.

Bus Transportation

Last semester we began to run the second bus on the Park-N-Ride campus shuttle. The ridership when one bus was running averaged about 375 passengers per day. During the month of April, with two busses running, the average number of riders rose to 900. With the loss of parking spaces over the summer, the following parking areas will be constructed with parking spaces: Robertshaw parking lot (70) spaces, R&P Band lot next to the bike path (50) spaces. Also, the R&P Band parking lot will have forty (40) spaces in the front end of the parking lot that is nonrestricted. The balance of the lot, as in past years, will be restricted during the fall semester for the marching band practices. In past years, parkers on this portion of the lot had to vacate the lot by 4:00 p.m. due to IUP Marching Band practice. This year they will have until 4:45 p.m. to move their vehicles from the lot. Beginning at 5:00 p.m., vehicles still on the lot will be towed; however, vehicles will not be towed from the lot on Tuesdays or Thursdays.

Please consider using the bus transportation on campus. When the second bus was placed on line, the wait for a bus was no more than seven minutes. There is a bus shelter at Robertshaw and the R&P band lot. Indiana County Transit Authority (IndiGo) has been the successful bidder on the campus Park-N-Ride bus contract for the next five years. This service will begin with the fall semester.

Traffic

Indiana Borough has approved a stop sign to be installed at the top of the hill on Eleventh Street at the Grant Street intersection. This intersection will become a four-way stop, replacing the current three-way stop. The sign should be installed within the next month.
