Parking and Sustainable Transportation Choices
Parking is an important element of transportation demand management, which aims to regulate the availability and price of parking on campus in order to influence individuals’ decisions to drive or take alternative modes of transportation. What’s more, ensuring flexibility with parking permits allows for individuals to drive when they need to, but take alternative modes where possible.
Over the years, UBC Parking & Access Services has taken on a number of initiatives to encourage sustainable transportation choices. UBC Parking allows individuals to register multiple cars on one parking permit, encouraging people to share the driving and the cost of parking by carpooling. There are also cheaper rates for motorcycles to incentivize lower impact vehicles.
