Penn Parking: Helping Patrons Prepare for the South Street Bridge Closure
October 28, 2008, Volume 55, No. 10

In preparation for the closure of the South Street Bridge, Penn Transportation and Parking is offering incentives to encourage current parking patrons to use alternatives modes of transportation for their daily commutes. All parking patrons (UPHS and Penn) who give up their parking will be guaranteed a space in the same garage or lot when/if they return (for 60 days after completion of the bridge project). This guarantee is in effect for all locations, including those with transfer lists. Recognizing that there will be times when individuals still need to drive to campus, a discounted parking card is also being offered ($10 per use for 25 uses vs. the normal $13 rate) to patrons who give up their parking for the South Street Bridge closure. The card will cost $250 and can be paid via a one time payroll deduction, credit card or cash. The card will have no expiration date and can be used in 3 garages. (Garage #37 at 34th and Chestnut, Garage #30 at 38th and Walnut or Garage #40 at 40th and Walnut.) For more information on these incentives call the Parking Office staff at (215) 898-8667.
