Iowa Staters respond to transportation, parking survey

by Linda Charles
More than 70 people responded to a recent online survey on campus parking and transportation.

Through a World Wide Web campus survey, the General Review of Transportation, Parking and Enforcement Committee sought faculty, staff and student opinions on campus transportation, enforcement, parking and related issues (such as those involving bikes and pedestrians).

The survey drew an unscientific sampling of comments on all four topics, with parking bringing in the most.

Jim Hutter, associate professor of political science and chair of the committee, which was appointed by the University Transportation Advisory Council, said most of those responding to the survey suggested building parking ramps on campus.

Hutter said some felt there were too many 24-hour reserve spots on campus and others objected to the number of handicapped spaces. Still others deplored the lack of short- term parking spaces in front of buildings.

Following are some of the comments that were submitted to the committee.
