suggestions on any of the issues outlined above, or additional issues you
would like to see considered in this study, please contact the TPC via
e-mail at TPC@ucsd.edu. Please forward these comments by May 12, 2000.

possibility of restricting some or most students living in on-campus
facilities from purchasing parking permits, yet recognizing the differing
needs of resident students (those who live in residence halls versus those
in apartments, those who work, those who are disabled, etc.).
- Consider the feasibility of entering into agreements with third-party
developers to construct and operate on-campus parking facilities.
- Evaluate and recommend expanded alternative transportation programs
including both University- and public-operated transit programs, rideshare
programs, bicycle facilities and others.
- Review the current parking permit system for efficiency and equitability
and make recommendations on parking permit restructuring.
- Research and analyze technological innovations and operational
modifications that would result in more efficient utilization of parking
- Evaluate the feasibility of separating the revenues, expenditures and
financing of Medical Center parking and transportation services supporting
clinical patient care programs from those serving UCSD's students, faculty
