Parking Services wins worldwide award

The International Parking Institute recently named UGA Parking Services as the 2011 worldwide parking organization of the year. UGA competed against thousands of parking organizations including universities, hospitals, municipalities and private entities for this award.

Parking Services’ commitment to customer service has resulted in the increased safety, security and physical appearance of its parking facilities; the development of more customer-driven solutions to parking challenges; the maintenance of fiscal responsibility and accountability; the enhancement of staff training and morale; and technology being infused throughout its programs.

The department’s focus on sustainability has resulted in reward programs for drivers of high efficiency cars and incentives for those using alternative transportation. The department’s focus on safety includes offering students a free vehicle maintenance and inspections program before school holidays.
