All registration and rental permits for faculty and staff members who park on campus will expire June 30. That's nothing new. What is new, however, is that the Division of Campus Parking and Transportation will no longer issue registration stickers. The stickers will be replaced with a single hangtag, which must be displayed on the rear- view mirror of any registered vehicle parked in a UI lot. The cost of registration will increase from $5 to $10 this year. However, drivers will only need to purchase one registration, regardless of the number of vehicles that might be driven to campus. Annual lot rental fees for 1995-96 also will increase - from $198 to $225. The rate for employees who participate in the carpool or remote shuttle parking programs remains at $30. Beginning this year, for employees who choose the payroll deduction method of paying for lot rentals, the $10 registration fee will be deducted as well. Those opting to pay for lot rentals by check may register by mail if they make their payments by May 12. The following questions and answers about the new system have been provided by Campus Parking and Transportation personnel to help clarify new procedures. Additional questions may be directed to them at 333-3530. Q: Why did we change from stickers to hangtags? There are many reasons why we changed from window stickers to hangtags. Most important is customer convenience. If you borrow a car, you no longer will need to call our office. Most people register more than one vehicle and now they only have to pay for one registration. It also will eliminate abuse of the system by people who register multiple vehicles and illegally park a second car in the lot, which denies space availability for other renters. By using the hangtag, we are able to use bar codes that can be read with laser readers and it will allow us to do electronic registration as well. Q: How do I register my vehicle this year? If you received renewal forms in the mail, and you want to receive the hangtag by mail, you must return all registration material to Campus Parking by May 12. Anyone who is currently on payroll deduction simply needs to sign the registration card and return it. If you are not on payroll deduction, you need to sign the registration card and return it with your payment. If you miss the May 12 deadline, the hangtags can be purchased over the counter starting June 1. Q: What do I do if I have more than one vehicle? This year, you will receive one hangtag. You must display this hangtag in whatever car you are parking on Campus. Q: What happens if my hangtag is lost or stolen? If a hangtag is lost or stolen, it should be reported to Campus Parking as soon as possible. A police report will be filed, and a replacement tag will be issued at the current prorated price. (Example: If your tag is lost or stolen after you have had it for two months, the replacement cost will be the price for 10 months. ) Q: What happens if I forget my hangtag? We are aware that some people may forget to transfer their hangtag when they drive a different vehicle. Each lot-rental hangtag will come with two courtesy cards. These may be used if you forget your hangtag and receive a citation. After the cards are used, you will be responsible for any citations issued. If your vehicle is towed, you will be responsible for these charges as well. Q: What do I do if my spouse doesn't rent but parks on campus? As a renter in a lot, you will receive one hangtag with your registration and lot number on it. If your spouse is employed by the university and wants to park at the meters, he/she also will have to register a vehicle to obtain a hangtag. If the spouse is not employed by the university, he/she can obtain a Visitor Permit to use the meters. Q: What else is new or in the planning stages at Campus Parking? We have been investigating new software that will allow us to operate more efficiently with our current facilities. This will enable us to provide the highest quality of customer service.
