Why invest in a gym membership when you can purchase a parking pass and get the same benefits from it without having to pay high monthly gym fees? That's the benefit you get from ASU parking. Parking and Transit Service (PTS) has been kind enough to bank $550 from you so that you can get yourself into shape over the year. And if that wasn't enough, PTS likes to grace us with their appearance randomly during the day to make sure we get some kind of parking ticket. There's more than 20 ways you can get cited for parking incorrectly on campus. These parking tickets come with a hefty fine, and you'd better fork up the cash, or they'll find you and nail you with another fine.
You'd think that, with the high dollar you pay for parking, your spot would be pretty sweet or something. On the contrary, your car is miles away from where you are on campus, so make sure to head down to school a good half hour before class starts or you're going to be rolling in late. As for the freshmen who park in the the covered parking structures just outside of classes, enjoy the glory days while they last. Next year, you'll join the rest of the student body out in Lot 59, where they have to fight each other for a decent spot. If you're looking to get fit, waste money, but need parking, then look no further than to ASU's PTS so they can hook you up.
