New parking rates approved
The board has approved new parking rates on the Burnaby campus effective Sept. 1, 2001. Rates will rise by $2-$6 per semester depending on the lot and type of parking pass. In considering the rise in rates the board was told that parking on campus is funded on a self-supporting basis and that revenue goes to maintenance, repairs and debt servicing. In spite of continually rising costs this is the first parking rate increase since 1997.
