Parking and transportation update

May 27, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

To support the university community as activity levels begin to increase on campus, several parking and transportation changes are planned in the coming weeks.

Permit enforcement

Beginning Monday, June 22, all Medical Campus structures will be enforced with gates lowered during enforcement hours. This includes the Glen, Ann, Catherine and Wall Street structures, in addition to P1-P5, which are currently enforced. Permit enforcement in Medical Campus surface lots will remain suspended until Wednesday, July 1, as well as parking areas on North, Central and South campuses.

On July 1, parking permit enforcement will be restored for all parking areas on North, Medical, Central and South campuses. Parkers will be required to observe all parking control signs that indicate permits required and enforcement hours.

Individual parking spaces signed for 24/7 enforcement (such as Accessible, Gold, Service or Business Vehicle) or areas signed for 24/7 enforcement remain enforced at all times. 

Patient/visitor parking

Patient/visitor parking on the Medical Center Campus, including the Wall Street area, remains enforced.

Permit sales and renewals to begin June 15 for new fiscal year

The Parking Customer Service offices at 523 S. Division Street and UH South will reopen on Monday, June 15 (523 S. Division: 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. (M-F) / UH South: 7:30 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. (M-F)).  

If visiting a parking customer service office is necessary, please observe social distancing while waiting in line. Everyone is encouraged to order online or return permits by mail if possible.

  • Permit holders with AVI devices or hang tags that auto-renew: Your parking permit has been renewed for FY21. Payroll deductions will be restored at the end of June (last June paycheck) for the start of the new fiscal year. 
  • Permit holders with permits that do not auto-renew: An email will go out to you in early June with instructions to purchase a new permit for FY21.
  • Permit holders on voluntary furlough: Please do not return your parking permit by mail. University employees who take a voluntary furlough will not be required to pay for parking during the furlough period and payroll deductions are suspended. Deductions resume on your return date and are retroactive for the entire month.
  • Permit holders working remotely longer term: If you do not want your parking payroll deductions to resume in June, please return your parking permit by mail or drop-box at Thompson Structure. Remote employees may also purchase daily parking options for occasional needs.

Postmark by June 30, via U.S. Certified Mail, UPS or FedEx with tracking to:

Parking Customer Services
523 S. Division St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48104

(Due to the timing of payroll deductions, you may see a June payroll parking deduction even if you have mailed in or returned your permit in June. If your permit return is postmarked by June 30, the June 2020 payroll parking deduction will be refunded to you.)


  • Emergency Ride Home, Ride Home, State Street Ride and Paratransit: These services will launch with provider Golden Limousine on June 1. Refer to the Logistics, Transportation & Parking website beginning June 1 for details and phone numbers.
  • Michigan Medicine shuttles:
    • Michigan Medicine Late Night Shuttles (currently operating) will transition to provider Golden Limousine on June 1. 
    • East Ann Arbor Employee Parking Shuttles will resume with the new provider on June 8. 
    • In early June, Indian Trails will return to provide additional service.
  • University Transit: Summer schedule will begin July 1 and includes Commuter, Med Express, Crisler Express, North-East Shuttle, Wall Street and Northwood routes. 

Riders should note the following safety measures in effect:

  • Use the rear doors to board and exit
  • Use face coverings
  • Practice social distancing while boarding and riding the bus
  • Cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces in buses takes place daily
