Permit Parking Rates--Fiscal Year 1996

For the 1996 academic year permit parking fees will increase an average of 4.85% which equates to a 69 per week increase in most University parking lots. The average permit parking rate will be $2.96 per working day and compares favorably with the minimum daily rate of $6.50 that non-permit holders currently pay in Penn's transient parking lots.
The general permit parking fee structure is responsive to the University policy requiring the Parking Program to be self-supporting. Parking income is used to cover the cost of surface lot improvements (e.g., pavement, fencing, striping, control gates), reduce the construction debt on garages, finance new construction of parking facilities, pay parking taxes and real estate rental fees, pay the salaries of attendants, and cover the cost of operating expenses (e.g., electricity, permit decals, snow removal).
