“We heard your concerns and it’s finally here”
The university will change the way parking is managed on campus, making the process more automated, streamlined, and easier for all community members. The new parking system is called T2.
On July 2 the WPI Police will switch from the current paper-based system to the T2 Parking Management Platform, a more efficient and customer-focused service that allows online registration renewals, payment of parking fines, online appeals and updates. This also means less plastic; you will keep your hanging tag and update it every two years with a simple sticker.
“This will be more efficient, and will streamline the system,” says Chief Cheryl Martunas. “Right now all of this is manually entered into the system and processed.” Chief Martunas would also like to acknowledge Information Technology Department, and the Finance and Operations office, Yvonne Harris, who were involved with the assessment of the system and the process implementation.
During the first year of implementation, users will need to enter all vehicle information into the system, however, every year thereafter--and as long as their information doesn’t change--it will be a simple check off a box. The first year placards will be distributed to employees via interoffice mail.
On renewal, users will verify their information, then a sticker will be mailed via interoffice mail to update the year on your hang tag.
Parking tickets can now be paid on line via credit or by debit card by going online to parking.wpi.edu. Those who wish to pay with a check or Goatbucks can go to the WPI Police Station or mail a check along with a copy of their ticket to: WPI Police, 100 Institute Road, Worcester, MA 01609. WPI Police cannot accept cash.
There will be a self-serve kiosk outside the WPI Police headquarters in the basement of Founders Hall.
The system will automatically generate email notification to violators with outstanding tickets. One email will go out each time a new ticket is issued. Additional reminders will go out when three and five tickets are accumulated.
Prior to the new system taking effect, please contact WPI Police at x 5533 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need assistance with your current parking permit.
