Permit Application Day 2016
The permit application day for the 2016/2017 Academic year has been delayed. As reported by "Team Tutt", we have submitted a parking plan for the fall to the City of Colorado Springs and anticipate an update within a few weeks. Campus Safety will send information about applying for academic year parking permits once the city has approved the parking plan.
CCAT Shuttle Time Changes
The shuttle will now run every shift in tandem with Safe Ride. This means that on Wednesday and Thursday, CCAT will provide shuttle service from 8 pm to 1 am, instead of 9 pm to 2 am. The shuttle times on Friday and Saturday will remain unchanged, offering service from 9 pm to 2 am.
Parking Lot Map
In preparation for tomorrow's permit application day, here is an updated parking lot map with the lots separated by color and labeled by lot designation.
New Parking Office Hours
We are excited to report that the parking office will now be staffed from 1pm to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Appeals, ticket payments, permit purchase and ordering, and all other parking related inquiries can now be made all the way until 5pm.
New Changes to the Parking System:
Several changes were made to the parking system over the summer that are now in effect for the academic year.
1. For the sake of clarity, two new violations have been adopted: "Wrong Permit for Lot" citations will be issued to permitted vehicles that are not parked in the correct area, and "Overtime Parking" citations will be issued to vehicles parked in excess of the posted time limit on 15 and 30 minute temporary spaces. These two citations replace the older "Illegal Parking" violation. The base amount for these tickets will be $10, and will follow the escalating fine policy established for Illegal Parking citations.
2. The 8 permit spaces directly adjacent to Montgomery Hall are no longer part of the W3 parking lot. They have been reserved for Admissions Guests only, as indicated by the new signs in the area. If you park in these spaces, you will receive a $75 ticket and could be towed. Please respect the reserved parking spaces on campus and help us better serve our prospective student population.
3. New directional signs have been placed throughout campus better identifying one-way traffic areas. These signs were placed to prevent traffic accidents, and we strongly urge all motorists to obey them. Vehicles observed in violation of these one-way traffic regulations will be ticketed.
4. In an effort to make better use of our available parking spaces, the rules regarding where you should park if your assigned lot is full have been changed. You are now allowed to park in the E1 Northeast Campus parking lot if you cannot find an open space in your assigned lot. You are still allowed to park in the closest available "Paid Visitor Parking" area, but we encourage people to try parking in the E1 lot so that those visitor spaces can be left available for visitors to campus.
