Effective immediately, Parking Services has increased the cost of all new Evanston campus permits to cover an increase in the parking tax imposed by the City of Evanston.
The new rate for full-time students, faculty and staff is $414 per year. The rate for part-time faculty and staff is now $207.
The price increase comes in direct response to the Evanston City Council's April 25 vote to increase the city parking tax by 20 percent.
Individuals who have already purchased permits will be unaffected by this increase until renewal time. The complete list of new rates is online at http://www.northwestern.edu/up/parking/fees.html.
Parking Services encourages car owners to purchase Ryan Field permits for $25. The Ryan Field shuttle runs all day Monday through Friday.
