Campus Parking Experience Questionnaire
Transportation Services is actively working to improve the parking and transportation experience of students, faculty and staff. We want to provide the UC Riverside campus community with an opportunity to share experiences, perceptions, ideas and concerns related to campus parking and transportation access and options through a brief questionnaire. The questionnaire should take less than 10 minutes to complete and is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/UCRParking through November 26th. All information collected will be kept confidential and reported only in aggregate. Three winners will be randomly selected each week until the close of the survey for $10 in UCR Dining Dollars.
Thank you in advance for sharing your valuable time with us. Questions about this questionnaire can be directed to Transportation Services: [email protected] or (951)827-8277.
Additional Gold+ 21 Permit Offering
A limited number of Gold+21 permits are now available to current Gold permit holders. If you currently have a Gold permit and would like to upgrade to a Gold+21 permit, please bring your current permit to the Parking Services office for an exchange. You will be charged the difference between the two permit prices for the remainder of the fall quarter.
Fall 2017 Parking Changes
Welcome back! Many changes to the parking lots have taken place over the summer. We want to ensure your parking experience is pleasant so please familiarize yourself with the attached changes.
Free Parking at Hunter Park Metrolink Station
The Riverside Hunter Park/UCR Station is an official county sponsored Park Ride lot and offers complimentary parking for commuters. The station is located at 1101 Marlborough Avenue, Riverside. From there you can take RTA Route 52 directly to campus. Bus service begins at 5:10am and the last bus back from UCR is at 7:30pm. Buses run approximately every 30-40 minutes. The P2P shuttle will take students back to the Hunter Park Metrolink Station in the evenings between 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm.
2017/ 2018 Campus Apartments / Residence Hall Parking Permits for Returning Students
Campus Apartment (Bannockburn, Falkirk, Glen Mor and University Plaza) parking permits and Residence Hall parking permits for the 2017/2018 school year for returning students are available for purchase at the Parking Services office. Parking Services is located at 683 Linden Street. Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Campus Apartment / Residence Hall parking permits are available on a first come, first served basis – quantities are limited.
Incoming Freshman Resident Parking Information
Due to limited parking availability on campus, freshman residents should plan on NOT bringing a vehicle to campus with them. Campus parking permits will only be issued to students who seek an exemption from Transportation Services based on a documented, compelling need for campus parking. Residents will be sent information regarding the exemption process when they are notified of their housing assignment in September.
Campus housing for freshmen offers an all-inclusive package designed specifically to complement the student’s academic pursuits by addressing student lifestyle needs. Consequently, it has been our experience that freshman residents do not need a vehicle during their first year. And if students do have a need to explore off campus, there are many ways for students without cars to get around, including: short-term car rental (Zipcar); bike sharing (Zagster); ride matching (Zimride); unlimited free rides on the RTA’s local and long-distance routes (U-Pass); and direct bus service to Metrolink’s Hunter Park station.
