Union pay lot takes effect


The pay lot east of The Union will be in operation starting Jan. 9 and free of charge until Jan. 15.

To enter the lot, press the blue button on the device and pull the ticket once dispensed. Upon exiting, insert the ticket into the machine and proceed to exit.

After Jan. 15 the rates will be $2 for the first hour and $1 for any following hour, or $8 a day. These rates will apply from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Between 4 p.m. and 2 a.m., Monday through Friday, the lot will be free of charge. During this time frame the automated gates will still remain down to ensure proper car count for the lot. On the weekends, the gates will be raised and the lot will be free to park.

From 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. any vehicle left in the lot will be ticketed for overtime parking, which is Parking Violation 4.4.7 and towed immediately at the owner’s expense. All vehicles towed from lot will be placed in the Remote Lot east of the Performing Arts Center.
