Why are parking permit rates different for various types of permits?

Permit prices are established based upon a number of factors, primarily including:

·         Location of spaces – the closer or more preferred the location the more expensive. The same principle is used at the airport where ‘terminal” parking is significantly more expensive than “remote” parking.

·         Privilege conferred by permit – “A” spaces are individually reserved spaces and carry a premium of 200% over the cost of regular faculty/staff  “F/S” and Eagle spaces which are in preferred locations but only provide a space “as available.”
