The University of Maryland wants you to leave your car at home so much, it’ll pay you.
The Department of Transportation Services is piloting a new program that will offer $425 to the first 50 eligible employees who give up their parking registration and commit to a sustainable commute for the 2018–19 academic year.
The Employee Parking Registration Cash-Out Program is designed to reduce parking demand and meet the university’s Climate Action Plan goals.
The registration period runs from 11 a.m. Aug. 1 to 4 p.m. Aug. 10 in the DOTS lobby in the Regents Drive Garage or at go.umd.edu/parking-cashout.
Here’s what else you need to know about this new initiative:
