2021 Tips from Parking & Transportation

Start the year off right. Read the following tips offered by Parking and Transportation Services.

What’s most important to know about campus parking? Parking permits are required and will be enforced on the first day of class.  If you have not done so already, buy online now. The permit will be mailed to your home address.  You may use the receipt as a parking permit for 10 – business days.  Receipts are sent to your Brockport email. Print and place on your car dash.  It’s that easy!

Office Hours: Office hours for the fall semester are 7:45 am – 3:30 pm, Monday – Friday.  Exception, Thursday, August 26 – Friday, September 3, 7:45 am – 4:30 pm.

Enforcement will remain Monday – Friday, 7:30 am – 7 pm.

Occasional Parkers: PTS recognizes that this fall, some students will be traveling less to campus. To allow flexibility in your permit choices, we have designed alternatives to purchasing a full year or semester permit.  Parking by the day and/or hour may suit your needs better. ParkMobile app allows for a contactless option using your smartphone. If time is running out, a text message will be sent to remind you to add time to your account.  No need to run back out to a meter. See link for locations ParkMobile is offered.

There are several coin-operated meters scattered throughout campus, as well as pay stations located in lots T (Tuttle) and V (SERC).  Bill or coin is accepted. 

Tips on finding a parking space: Parking demand is exceptionally high during the first two weeks of the fall semester. Plan on arriving to campus early; don’t wait in line for a space; try lots D (Holley St) and V (near SERC); plan to walk 5-7 minutes to your destination. Have a plan in mind for alternative parking if your first preference is full when you arrive. Greeters will be out and about to offer assistance.

RTS Public Transportation: Reimagine RTS is a redesign of Monroe County’s public transit system to better meet our community’s needs, demands, and expectations. This mass transit plan is designed to work with new mobility options to provide customers with a modern, relevant transit system that is frequent, reliable, and connected.
