New Hours for PTS Parking Structure #6 Office Location

Parking and Transportation Services’ main office location in Parking Structure #6 (at the corner of Press and Virginia Avenues) now has new hours. Changes include reducing late-night office hours and eliminating Sunday office hours. The new hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The office was previously open until 9:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The changes are designed to respond to the changing needs of the campus community.
