With the exception of the Vandal Access Service, Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is entirely self-funded. We're proud to contribute to U of I's improvement while freeing up funds for programs benefitting students, staff and faculty. In addition to operational expenses, PTS is responsible for funding capital improvements like parking lot renewal.
Being self-funded, we pay close attention to expenses and save money by doing a significant portion of lot improvement and maintenance in-house. By design, we receive only about 16% of our revenue from citations. Our goal is to keep this slice of the pie very low and focus on revenue streams based on parking products and event services.
