Parking Fees and ORCA Passes
on behalf of Rachel Solemsaas and Deric Gruen
Dear Campus Community:
For the last year, we have worked closely with student, faculty and classified representatives about implementation on our transportation management plan. The following is an update on our progress:
The Board of Trustees approved parking fees for students and visitors last June 29th, 2011 effective for fall quarter or September 19.
Students can get a new quarterly permit online or pay daily at parking meters. For quarterly permits, students pay $65 for an everyday permit or $35 for M/W or T/TH permit. Permits will be mailed to the student. Students can print a temporary permit following their purchase. Parking permit sales go online September 1st and will be linked from the Bellevue College website.
Visitors can get daily parking permits at parking meters in lots 9, 15 and P5 (the garage). Lot 4 will become employee parking only. Public Safety will offer validation codes for departments that wish to prepay for visitors using parking meters. Employees will no longer be able to print permits for visitors.
