Has your office been flooded with complaints from students or faculty who were late to classes or meetings because they couldn't find a parking spot? This widespread issue indicates a significant challenge that universities worldwide grapple with. In fact, studies from both the University of California and Clemson University expose the depth of parking difficulties on campuses.

Decoding the Complexities of Campus Parking

Tackling the daily surge of vehicles on campus involves more than just managing sheer numbers. It's about enhancing the utilization of existing spaces, minimizing traffic congestion, and improving the overall parking experience.
