Anyone commute to campus?

How much do you have to pay for parking? I'm going to have to pay $23 a week this semester. BLAH!

I drive 45 minutes to school... (a step up from an hour last year).  I pay nothing for parking because I park in a free lot and walk... good for me who hates to workout.  I signed up for a paid spot and they told me it is about a 2 year wait (well I will be done in 2 years.. haha).  It costs about $150 I think for the semester or year, but it's not the lot I want to park in so I don't really see a point in paying.

a parking pass at my school is free and the commute isn't too bad about 20 minutes in traffic.

I commute about 10 min ish. And a commuter parking pass is $50!!! Last year I didn't buy one, I would just chance it. Parking tickets were only $10 each, and I got 4 campus parking tickets so I actually paid less money than if I would have gotten a commuter pass. But this year they have raised the prices of parking tickets to $30-50! So I was just like screw it, and bought a pass. Ugh.

I'm not paying the university that... that's public parking rates. UW-Madison is downtown, so it's going to the city.

Commute: 1.5hrs, Yearly parking pass: $200AUD, knowing I'm going to be working in the job of my dreams? Priceless!

Mine is $90 per semester for the garage =/ 


Otherwise I'd have to park, catch the bus, and then walk across campus to get to class.  This way I get to park next to the gym, so that's worth it to me :)

Oooh I think I win - parking is $11.40 CAD per day, and a monthly pass is about $130 - but they are super hard to come buy. You must be put on a waiting list. However - every student on campus pays a "transit fee" and is a given transit pass for Sept. - April.

Our parking passes are included with our tuition fees.  I think they are usually 35 but I'm not completely sure.  However, since starting nursing school, I no longer have to pay.  Which is fabulous.

Parking permit is $40 the year


But I just park on a side street, so it's free :)

Yes I communte and it's such a pain in the butt! I kinda miss living on campus so I could walk to and from where ever I needed to go. Now it's like a 30 minute drive from work to class and then home!
