PARKING ON CAMPUS IS EVEN BIGGER BUSINESS
According to the Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) Annual Report for 2016-17, parking registration fees bring in $10 million dollars in revenue and parking fines bring in $180 thousand dollars in revenue to the University of Maryland. There are more parking registrations sold then parking spaces made available and with additional revenue from visitor parking and special events, the Department of Transportation Services is profiting off the scarcity of parking. In addition, there have been a substantial loss of parking spaces and more to come throughout the coming years due to construction projects.
