Just in time for the 2017-18 academic year, Parking Services launched the new UT Parking app Monday, Aug. 28. The free app is available for both Android and iOS devices, including iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices.
Faculty, staff and students may install the new app on their smart phones by searching for University of Toledo Parking in the App and Play stores. The app also may be found at the following links: for Android users here; and for iOS users (iPhones and iPads) here.
“After you download the app, enter your utad name and password the first time you use it,” explained Anita Crane, enterprise applications automation developer, who was instrumental in developing the new app. “A great feature is that once you log in, the app uses fingerprint recognition to provide you with one-touch, easy access. However, if your device doesn’t have this technology, the app will still work fine.
“Whenever you use the app, it should give you fast access to myparking and the parking guest site. Everything will look the same, just as if you’re accessing these sites through a browser,” noted Crane.
“We’re really pleased to be able to offer this application at the onset of fall semester,” said Sherri Kaspar, manager of public safety services. “UT drivers will discover many benefits when using the new app, including the ability to switch between registered vehicles, appeal tickets and pay parking fines.
“Also, if you want to quickly find a lot for your permit type that you don’t use often, you can quickly access frequently asked questions on our webpage and refer to the Where May I Park? information,” Kaspar added.
“For drivers who may frequently need to switch from one primary registered vehicle to another, we recommend they print a permit confirmation for each of the vehicles stored in their profile and keep them stored in their car,” said Bonnie Murphy, associate vice president for auxiliaries. “This will help to ensure drivers always have the corresponding permit confirmation readily available to display on their dashboard, which is a new requirement in 2017-18.”
As a reminder, fall semester parking enforcement begins Monday, Aug. 28. To avoid being ticketed, all drivers must have their vehicles registered and park in a lot designated for their permit type.
