Changes to Penn’s Parking Policy for Transient Parkers
January 26, 2010, Volume 56, No. 19

Effective February 1, 2010

A $5 flat rate will be charged to the public daily after 4 p.m. and on weekends in the following lots: Lot 1 (Walnut St. between 32nd and 33rd Sts.), Lot 16 (Eisenlohr Lot, SW corner 38th & Walnut Sts.), Lot 19 (NE corner 34th & Chestnut Sts.) and Lot 23 (SW corner 38th & Sansom Sts.). In partnership with Parkway Corporation, solar powered “Pay and Display” machines have been installed in these lots. The $5 daily rate, which is less expensive than street metered parking, provides an economical parking option for visitors to the University City area. Parkway Corporation will monitor the meters and enforce University rules and regulations in each location. The meters will be in operation: Monday-Thursday 5 p.m.-5 a.m. and Friday 5 p.m.-Sunday 11 p.m. (except during special events).  

University permit holders will not be affected by this initiative and will not lose the privilege of parking on these lots during non-peak hours. For questions about this new policy contact the Parking Office at: (215) 898-8667.
