RIDER TIPS:

  • Any valid UNCG parking permit may be used to Park & Ride except VB, EB, and RA permits. Remember to display your permit when inside the lot. Vehicles parked without displaying a valid permit will be ticketed.
  • The most economical parking permit choice for commuters who live off campus is the “E” permit (only $180 per academic year) which allows drivers to park on campus in designated spaces after 3pm Monday-Friday and during weekends.
  • If you are new to Park & Ride, arrive 30 minutes early before your first class begins. This will give you plenty of time to catch the next bus (10 minutes max), travel to the bus stop closest to your building (10 minutes max), and walk to your building (10 minutes max).  Once you develop a routine for the semester, less time will likely be sufficient.
  • If you arrive to campus after 8:30am, save yourself time and gas by going directly to Park & Ride instead of driving around campus “hunting” for a parking space.
  • Because Park & Ride does not operate during breaks, holidays, or summer sessions, “E” permit holders may park on campus all day (24 hours) in designated “C” spaces during these times.
  • Buses #1, #6, #8, #9, #14 and #19 are equipped with a wheelchair lift.
  • Always yield to buses and pedestrians when entering and exiting the Park & Ride lot.
  • Vehicles must turn right on W Gate City Blvd to exit the Park & Ride lot. To expedite traffic flow, left turns are not permitted between 7am and 7pm.
  • If the Park & Ride lot reaches capacity, overflow parking is available across the street at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex War Memorial Auditorium parking lot.
  • In case of inclement weather, service could be delayed or canceled. To find out if buses are operating, please call (336) 334-5681.
  • All vehicles must be driven out of the lot each night before the lot closes and gates are locked. Any vehicle left in the lot after the gates are locked will be ticketed and may be towed.
