Parking and Transportation merge into new unit

April 10, 2013

Parking Services and Transportation Services at CSU are merging this spring to improve efficiencies and better develop holistic plans for parking and transportation on campus.

The merger will incorporate motor pool and the CSU fleet from Facilities Management into Parking and Transportation Services. The unit will oversee university vehicle leases, rentals and purchases; bus service, alternative transportation initiatives such as expanding bike racks on campus, parking lot maintenance, parking permits and enforcement, and car-sharing programs such as Zipcar. Parking and Transportation Services will report to Steve Hultin, executive director of Facilities Management, which is within the Division of University Operations.

Alternative transportation initatives a priority

“This merger will allow us to take a new look at expanding our efforts in creating additional alternative transportation initiatives such as ride-share programs, enhanced bicycle programs, shuttle programs, and parking options such as on-campus garages,” Hultin said. “The merger opens a closer connection for collaborations at all levels of planning regarding transportation across, within and to the university.”

“One of the first tasks of the new unit,” said Dave Bradford, director of Parking Services and Transportation Services, “will be to look at results of the current transportation study and incorporate them into future university facilities and alternative transportation planning.”  

Gene Stroh, an associate director of Parking and Transportation Services, will bring his years of management experience and insight to the merger. The CSU motor pool and fleet will continue under Stroh’s management and will remain at the Pitkin Street location.
