Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to “Choose Transit” during the Fall semester when visiting main campus to help decrease the dependency on the limited availability of parking spaces. Parking and Transportation Services will be conducting drawings and giving out prizes throughout the semester for individuals who utilize transit services rather than driving onto campus.
The availability of parking on campus will be shifting due to the presence of ongoing and future construction projects.
“We want to get people on our buses, whether it’s through our Pendleton and Red routes, via the discounted Park-n-Ride lots or Tiger Commute from Greenville,” said Kat Moreland, senior associate director of Parking and Transportation Services. “If you ride a bus six times a week, we’re offering $10 in Paw Points. We’re doing that the first three weeks of school as travel plans and routines are established. We encourage everyone to choose transit — it’s fast, free and friendly!”
Incentives will be offered to University students and employees who utilize Clemson Area Transit through the Red Route — which offers service from the University to downtown Clemson and on Highway 93 toward Central — as well as the Pendleton Route and Tiger Commute.
Park-n-Ride locations are also available on the western side of main campus at P-6 (Snow Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Complex) and P-5, P-7 and P-8 (covered) on the eastern end via Highway 76.
Please note, the P-6 Park-n-Ride lot will not be available until Monday, Aug. 29 due to construction at the Snow Complex property. During the closure, West Park-n-Ride parking permit holders are instructed to park on Ravenel Rd. on the North side of Littlejohn Coliseum with overflow parking available in the C-15 parking lot. Permit holders are encouraged to use the Orange Route from Ravenel to Brackett Hall beginning Wednesday, August 24. When the Snow Complex reopens on Monday, August 29, the West Park-n-Ride transit route will resume and all permit holders will need to park in the P-6 lot per the permit guidelines.
