Beginning on Tuesday, July 5, 2016, moped sticker permits will be distributed at the Parking & Transportation Services office, 300 Transportation & Safety Building, 511 Washington Avenue SE, East Bank campus. Hours are Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Drivers will need to bring three things to pick up the free sticker:

When the sticker permit is picked up, drivers will receive a printed copy of Moped Policies and Ordinances.

Mopeds and motor scooters are prohibited from all campus sidewalks and can be assessed a parking ticket for parking at bike racks on campus.
