To: UCSC Community

From: Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS)

TAPS is pleased to announce an exciting new change to your on-campus parking options!

On January 14, 2022, TAPS will take the parking pay stations on the residential campus off line and replace them with the ParkMobile mobile payment system. The pay station located at Lot 201 will remain operational, and payments for parking in Lot 201 and 206 may continue via this pay station through June, 2022.

The following pay stations and affected parking areas that will receive this service: 

  • Lot 101 (Hahn Student Services)
  • Lot 103A (Athletics & Recreation)
  • Lot 107 (Cowell)
  • Lot 109 (Stevenson)
  • Lot 112 (Core West)
  • Lot 117A/122 (Cook House / Barn Theatre)
  • Lot 124/125 (Porter)
  • Lot 126 (Arts)
  • Lot 162 (Oaks ) 

 Existing parking limits and options will remain in effect with three exceptions:

  1. Lot 103A will now have 3 hour parking instead of a 2 hour maximum, but no flat rate option after 4:30PM. 
  2. Lot 122 will no longer be available for short term parking. 
  3. Lot 117A will offer 1, 2, or 3 hours of parking or a daily parking option.
