8/17: Transportation Announcement for Fall 2020

On August 8, Provost Charles Zukoski and Senior Vice President David Wright announced that the Fall 2020 semester would begin fully online (see memo here). In response to that announcement, USC Transportation is announcing the following updates for Fall semester:

1)      Effective immediately, parking will remain free for all USC Faculty, Staff and Students through December 31, 2020, subject to the following conditions:

a.      Permits ARE still required. If you previously purchased a permit online and have it in your possession, please put it on your vehicle and display it at all times while parked at USC. If you do not yet have a permit, but need one, please log into (or create) your Transportation account here, and order one. Again, you will not be charged for the Fall semester, but you need to display a permit so we know you are a USC constituent and your vehicle will not be cited. All new permits purchased online now may be printed from home so they can be used immediately; when ordering online, please use a future date (e.g., tomorrow) for the effective date, and 12/31/2020 as the expiration date.

b.      Parking is ONLY free in normal, unreserved spaces in the campus parking structures, OR the location specified by your existing permit type. (For example, if you have a Troy Hall permit, you may park in Troy Hall OR any normal, unreserved space in a campus structure.) Citations will still be issued if you park in any red zone, ADA space, pay-by-plate location, EV space, or other reserved area without the appropriate permit for that particular space.

2)      Parking for campus guests, vendors, contractors, department reservations and any other non-USC permit holders will be the normal rate of $14/day. All campus parking zone restrictions still apply.

3)      On August 7, Senior Vice President David Wright and Chief Health Officer Dr. Sarah Van Orman announced the health requirements regarding access to campus (see memo here). Everyone who comes to campus, including faculty, staff, students, guests, contractors, etc., will be required to show proof of their daily health attestation at various vehicle or pedestrian Trojan Checkpoints. The fastest and easiest way to do this is using the Trojan Check app. Anyone who cannot show proof will be asked to pull over/step aside and complete a health attestation before entering campus.
