Multiple construction projects including parking lot maintenance are ongoing throughout the University, and workers are parking in the same lots as faculty, staff and students. We request your patience and understanding. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
This fall, Zipcar is coming to campus for all 18 and older Southern Illinois students, faculty and staff. Zipcar is car-sharing, an alternative to bringing a car to school, that gives members 24/7 access to vehicles parked right on campus. Rates start at $7.50/hour or $69/day with gas, insurance, and 180 miles per day included to go wherever you want to go. Members can reserve cars online or with a smart phone for as little as an hour or up to seven days. This semester, enjoy all the freedom of owning car without any of the hassle.
SIUE Parking Services is partnering with RideFinders, the St. Louis regional rideshare program, to encourage faculty, staff and students to share a ride to work or class. Ride sharing is an environmentally conscientious way to commute. For many, it can reduce stress, save money and improve productivity.
Starting Fall 2015, SIUE will offer preferential parking spaces in either Lot A or Lot E, and half-price green permits for individuals wishing to take advantage of the new Cougar Carpool program.
Those interested in participating must first register in the RideFinders program. Participants can take advantage of Ridefinders’ Guaranteed Ride Home program, which offers members up to four rides home per year in the event an emergency requires them to leave work or school unexpectedly. There must be at least two (2) vehicles and two (2) residences to qualify for the program.
Cougar Carpool permits will be available in the Parking Service Office. Faculty and staff using a carpool permit may also purchase a green or blue permit. Non-residential students using the carpool may also buy a red permit.
Registration runs from July 1-August 8.
Parking Services is making a new app available effective Fall 2015 which will allow you to buy or add time to the meters in Lots B and C. There is a $0.35 fee per transaction. Go to: http://www.whooshstore.com to download the app.
