My letter is to inform about the unfairness UH Parking&Transportation services is putting UH employees through. A portion of lot 1E will be shut down while renovations take place in the UC. No certain time when it will be complete but certainly, I think it will be longer than one semester.
Meantime, us that park there are being told by Parking&Transportation Services Director Robert J. Browand that they are going to move some people from that lot. And you know who that will be? The poorest. According to a statement from them, “Once we have a final count of the number of spaces available we will then assign the spaces based on pay grade”.
In other words, if you do not make good money, not only will you be kicked out of that lot, but also sent to another more expensive lot (garage as they suggest), so we are getting the double punishment. Walk further away, pay more when we make less. What kind of system is that? It should be based on the length of time you have been in that lot. The other alternative would be a student or economy lot. You know how that goes each morning trying to get a spot if you are not here at 7:00am. I just think they should reconsider the way decisions are made within parking.
