I promised everyone an update when Transportation & Traffic Management, our university business unit that oversees transit and traffic-related services and the parking lease, was settled in to their offices. The university has also formed a Parking Advisory Committee to help gather feedback about parking operations. This committee is chaired by the Office of Administration and Planning and has representation from faculty, staff and students. READ MORE.
Ohio State is facing funding challenges. Only 10% of our budget comes from state funds. To fund our critically important programs, we must rethink the status quo.
This site provides the University community with information about the parking lease which allowed the university to receive an up-front payment of $483 million from QIC Global Infrastructure to invest in support of our core mission of teaching, learning and research. In September 2012, we transitioned the management of our parking operations to our partner in parking, CampusParc. CampusParc is the local entity QIC set up to manage the parking lease.
The university has formed a Parking Advisory Committee (PAC). Prior to moving forward with the parking lease, we assured you that the university would gather feedback about parking operations. One of the ways we will do this is through the PAC, which is different than the group the university gathered to provide insight while we were determining if we should move forward with the lease. All parking operations questions and needs should be directed to CampusParc, but the PAC can be contacted via email with ideas, comments and suggestions regarding the overall management of the parking system. More information about the PAC is available on this site as well.
