Technology, sustainability, communications and personal preferences are changing the parking and transportation landscape.  Nowhere is this more true than in higher education communities where experimentation and research are known to thrive. 

But nearly 76% of commuting employees still drive alone to work, with the next highest transportation mode being carpooling at just over 12% [1].  Providing parking for employees who drive to work while encouraging other modes requires facilities, alternative programs to entice different commuting behavior, tenacity to lead change, and funding to meet existing needs and plan for new ones.  Add the travel requirements of graduate and undergraduate students and the issue becomes even more complicated.

Many higher education parking and transportation programs must operate as self-funded auxiliaries.  Parking rates are not only important in this regard, they are also a strong variable to affect behavior.  They may also play a role in consideration of higher education concessions to raise capital.

CMA has worked with large and small premiere institutions of higher education to plan for campus growth and change, solve capital and operating problems, and create or improve organizations and programs.
