What is Tiger Park?
Tiger Park is our parking-management system.
How does Tiger Park work?
License plates are now used as virtual parking permissions. Vehicle-mounted cameras and hand-held scanners identify vehicles by their license plates and use Tiger Park technology to determine whether a vehicle has a permission to park in a particular location. Tiger Park manages virtual permissions, metered parking, enforcement and citations.
Benefits for Students
Tiger Park eliminates physical hangtags and stickers that must be moved between vehicles. Students may enter one license plate on their Tiger Park account at a time, but they can log into their accounts any time to change the license plate associated with their virtual parking permission. Tiger Park technology allows for more efficient enforcement. So, finding a parking space in your assigned lot or garage should be easier.
Benefits for Employees
Tiger Park eliminates physical hangtags that must be moved between vehicles. Employees are allowed to maintain as many as three license plates in their Tiger Park accounts; however only one license plate per account will be allowed on campus at a time. Tiger Park technology allows for more efficient enforcement. So, finding a parking space in your assigned lot or garage should be easier.
For employees who have a spouse also working at MU, both employees may register each other's vehicle(s) under their own accounts.
When a vehicle is found to be parked in violation on university property, a citation will be emailed to the driver’s registered email account. The email will include a link to pay the citation online via a secure pay site. When an unregistered vehicle is found to be in violation, a citation will be issued. If it is found to be in violation more than once, a notice of the multiple violations will be left on the vehicle.
The vehicle-mounted cameras take low-resolution photos that do not allow for possible vehicle occupants to be identified. Data collected for non-violators will be held off-site in a secure location and will be deleted at the end of each semester.
Tiger Park eliminates the need for plastic hangtags and stickers. Paper tickets, the orange envelopes they come in and printed receipts will no longer be used. Cost savings will be used to maintain parking lots and structures.
