This decision is to ensure Parking and Transportation Services can continue to meet existing requirements while maintaining our parking facilities and covering operational costs. During this time, Parking and Transportation Services is providing services to the university community on a limited basis and will continue its efforts to provide the best parking experience possible once normal operations resume.
If you have turned in your USF parking permit to Parking and Transportation Services and need it returned to you, please make this request via PSWEB.
We appreciate your understanding.
