Notification of Parking Rate Increases for 2002-03 Academic Year


In Spring 2002, the Campus Fee Advisory Committee reviewed and recommended a three-tiered increase to campus parking rates. The fundamental issues that guided these increases include:

1. The urgent need to address the imminent shortfall in available campus parking and the recognition that current rates are not adequate to fund the future needs for parking spaces on the campus. Parking fees on the campus have remained unchanged since 1989 (13 years). They currently rank amongst the lowest in the CSU system.

2.The need to create additional campus transportation routes to support the current trams and shuttles. The Parking Revenue Fund finances the operation of the campus trams and shuttles without financial support from the General Fund.

The first tier of increased parking rates will be implemented effective September 2002. All campus administrators in the Management Personnel Plan (MPP), Confidential Employees (C99s), as well as all employees of the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., Associated Students, Inc. and International Polytechnic High School will begin paying the new rates with their paycheck received on or about October 1, 2002. All students will begin paying the new rates effective with the start of Fall Quarter.

State of California employees that are represented by CSU collective bargaining (units 1 though 9) will not experience a rate increase for the 2002-03 year due to their current collective bargaining agreements with the State. Future rates for these employees will be determined as new collective bargaining agreements are approved.

2002-03 Parking Rates ? Effective September 19, 2002
Type of Permit/Current Rate/New Rate Effective Fall 2002

Vehicles $36/quarter $54/quarter
Motorcycles $9/quarter $15/quarter
Visitors $1.50/day $4.00/day

Employees represented by a CSU collective bargaining agreement may continue to purchase visitor/daily permits at the current rate of $1.50 by going to the Visitor Information Booth and displaying a valid Bronco Access Card that identifies the employee as FACULTY/STAFF. There will be no discounts or refunds on daily permits if this valid ID is not presented at the time of the transaction.

Specific questions on the new parking rates and/or their implementation should be directed to Mr. Charles Holt, Director of Parking and Transportation Services at x3063 or Dr. Douglas Freer, Assistant Vice President for Student Auxiliary Services at x3310.
