Why We Charge for Parking
Texas law prohibits state universities from using state or university funds for any parking operations, which necessitates that PTS operates on a totally self-funded basis. All construction, operations, maintenance, enforcement, and administrative expenses must be financed through revenue generated by the sale of permits, meter use, garage daily parking fees, event parking, and fees collected from enforcement. University faculty, staff, and students pay for the privilege of parking on campus and safeguarding this privilege is a legitimate and important responsibility of PTS.
Our campus is very large, and parking spaces are an extremely limited commodity for the thousands of daily employees, students, and visitors. Many faculty, researchers, staff members, and students routinely visit our campus both throughout the week and on weekends; therefore, parking regulations must be enforced on a year-round basis.
