Description: UCLA has long been a leader in reducing drive-alone rates. Historically, this has been accomplished by subsidizing alternative transportation products. In an era of constrained resources, this approach is limited. This webinar will explore what additional gains UCLA has been able to accomplish by granting customer flexibility rather than through subsidy–faculty and staff can now purchase daily parking pre-tax online via payroll deduction.  Also, hear what our customers are saying about this added flexibility.

This has included early adoption of LPR and efforts to reduce neighborhood impacts of university parking demand at Loyola Marymount University. Recently, Lechner has led efforts to move UCLA from physical permits to virtual permits and as part of that project has introduced innovative programs to increase operational efficiency and provide customers the ability to make more granular parking choices.
