New Online Visitor Registration
Parking Operations is excited to introduce the new online visitor permit registration.
This will allow those who visit campus a way to procure their permit prior to arrival. For their convenience, Parking Operations is offering an additional option to receive their visitor permit online. As our parking policy 2.1 states, all vehicles must have a permit. This is another way to offer a higher level of convenience to our visitors. The first visitor permit is complementary and all subsequent visitor permits are $2 per day. Visitors may park in any valid space on campus except, Reserved, Service, Exclusive Service, or Handicap spaces. Any vehicle utilizing metered parking must pay the meter (Please note the maximum time allowed is 45 minutes). The link will take you to a secure web-site which will allow one to purchase a visitor permit for one day or multiple days. When the transaction has been completed, the permit should be printed out and placed on the driverside dashboard prior to arriving to campus. We hope this will provide a greater level of service to those who may not have the time to drop by our office and or are arriving after hours. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 325-3526 or 662-325-2661 on Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM until 4:30 PM.

New Changes in Parking & Transit Services
As we begin a new academic year, we find exciting new changes at Parking Services. For the 2012-2013 year we are pleased to offer faculty, staff, and students more parking options, extended shuttle hours, and a re-invented bike program. The new options are as follows:
• Park and Ride Permit- This permit is half the cost of a regular permit and will be $58.00 for the year (prorated monthly). It will allow faculty, staff and students to park their vehicles at the Scales/Recplex area, located on Stone Boulevard near the Vet School, and ride the shuttle to campus.
• Evening Permit- This permit is intended for the faculty, staff and students who come to campus in the evenings. The permit will be $8.00 for the year and will only be valid on campus after 5:00 p.m. It will allow faculty, staff, and students to park in any valid space that is not Reserved, Service, Handicap or Exclusive Service.
• Sportsplex Park and Ride- This allows faculty, staff, and students the option to park at the Starkville Sportsplex located on Lynn Lane at no cost. There is no permit needed to park at the Starkville Sportsplex. Faculty, staff, and students will be allowed to ride the shuttle to campus.
This year the MSU shuttles will have newly extended hours. All shuttle routes will now run from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For those who do not drive to campus, Parking Services will be implementing a new Bike Share Program. Faculty, staff, and students will come to the Parking Services office and check out a MSU bicycle for the semester at their convenience. The person who checks out the bicycle will be the responsible party and charges could apply if not returned and/or damaged. Parking Services also has bicycle helmets available for give away while supplies last.
Due to the newly constructed residential halls Oak and Magnolia, there will be changes to the parking zones for the upcoming academic year. The changes are as follows:
• The gravel lot located on the east side of Hardy road will change to South Zone parking. There will be a new gravel lot added next to the Music Building for Commuter East Zone parking.
• A newly constructed lot behind Hathorn Hall will be extended to accommodate more South Zone parking.
• A newly constructed lot located behind Newell Grissom will be available for Commuter West Zone parking.
