After years of planning, it’s time for Mizzou Parking & Transportation to increase permit prices. It’s been 14 years since the last increase, and our parking structures are in dire need of maintenance. Our plan for faculty and staff permit pricing provides tiers based on salary and will increase incrementally over the next three academic years (AY). Student permits are included in the lowest tier.
This plan has been discussed with staff leadership and the Graduate/Professional Council, and further conversations are soon slated with undergraduate student leaders as well as Faculty Council to ensure questions can be answered.
The Mizzou Parking & Transportation committee recommended this plan, which has been approved by university leadership to begin fall 2021. Currently, Mizzou’s rates are some of the lowest in the Southeast Conference and the lowest among our Midwest university peers. Even with increased rates, Mizzou will continue to offer among the lowest.
Revenue from permit sales pays for deferred maintenance of parking structures and lots. Increasing permit prices will allow Mizzou Parking to address $26 million in deferred maintenance over the next 10 years.
You may view the presentation for more information about Mizzou Parking and the new plan. We appreciate the community’s understanding that maintenance of lots and structures is necessary to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
