Transportation Updates

Spring semester color zone restrictions

Color zone restrictions go into effect on Monday, January 14. Parking permit holders are required to park in their assigned color zone Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 4:00pm. While a permit is still required, color zone restrictions are lifted after 4:00pm from Monday through Friday and anytime during the weekend.

E-Scooter Parking Policy 

Recently the City of Coral Gables approved an app-based, pay-as-you-ride electric scooter pilot program. While the university does not have a partnership with the e-scooter companies, scooters are showing up on campus and are parked illegally. In an effort to encourage e-scooter parking compliance, if you see a scooter blocking access to entryways, doorways, walkways, and ADA ramps contact UM Police at 305-284-6666. 

Scooter riders must follow university's scooter parking policy. Click here to familiarize yourself with the e-scooter parking policy.

Effective Monday, August 20, 2018, parking enforcement hours at the Coral Gables Campus and Gables One Tower will be enforced 7-days a week from 8:00AM to 11:00PM. All vehicles will be required to have their license plate registered with the university during enforcement hours.

 No Back-In Policy

Effective Monday, February 19, 2018, all vehicles parked on the Coral Gables campus and Gables One Tower must have their licence plate number facing outward in order for it to be read by the License Plate Recognition (LPR) enforcement cameras.

Drivers with out-of-state vehicles that have both a front and back plate will be able to back-in. Drivers not having a front plate may purchase a "vanity" front plate from the Parking and Transportation Office located at the McKnight Building Suite 100. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the No Back-in regulations.
