WKU To Offer New Transit, Parking Plan

CREATED Mar 30, 2014

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky University students will have new parking and transit options this fall.

Director of Parking and Transit Services Jennifer Tougas says the university has lost about 500 parking spaces over the last two years accounting for about 10 percent of the total spaces on campus.

The Topper Transit System will increase the frequency of buses on routes. Half-hour bus service from the South Campus to main campus will be increased to every six minutes.

Commuter permits will be limited. The $90 permits will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Commuters also will have the option to purchase a $160 Alumni Square garage permit or a South Campus park and ride permit for $50.
