Parking rates rise $10/month for University permit holders

Monthly parking fees at Pitt lots have gone up $10 across the board beginning July 1. University permit holders have until July 12 to cancel their permits in order to avoid the July payroll deduction for parking, Bob Harkins, director of Parking, Transportation and Services, announced in a June 28 memo.

Harkins attributed the raised fee to the 5 percent increase in the city's parking tax and an increased debt service burden borne by the parking office. Parking fees have not been raised at the University since 1994, Harkins said.

In January, Parking and Transportation announced a pre-tax discount for Pitt permit holders using payroll deduction. The automatic deduction before taxes is in compliance with an amendment to the 1999 Internal Revenue Service Code. According to parking office calculations, the discount saves an average permit holder about $14 per month.

For further information, call the parking office at 624-4034.
