Clemson University Parking and Transportation Plan

Clemson University Parking and Transportation master plan developed to benefit both the campus and the
surrounding community.
In April 2002, the Clemson University Parking Advisory Committee adopted Ten Principles of Parking, which were incorporated into the Campus Master Plan. Among the principles were access to reasonably convenient, safe and consistently reliable parking options, a parking philosophy that utilizes both district and perimeter strategies of parking, an emphasis on parking education and management, promotion of alternate modes of transportation throughout the campus, and long range plans for additional parking based on future campus development.

During the school year, Clemson University has a population of 17,000+ students and over 4,658 faculty and staff. Consequently, a plan was needed to address the parking and transportation needs for both the campus and the greater Clemson area that is served by the same transit system.

Clemson University selected a team led by Carl Walker, Inc. to develop a Parking and Transportation Master Plan(PTMP) that will serve as a complimenting component of the overall Campus Master Plan. It will also serve as a blueprint for parking and transportation planning, policies and financial program development for the next five years. Carl Walker was assisted by Connetics Transportation Group in developing recommendations related to the transit system and by UrbanTrans Consultants, Inc. in developing a program of Transportation Demand Management initiatives. The plan was completed this year and consisted of three major phases:

1. A Supply/demand analysis and transportation system assessment.

2. A Parking and Transportation Master Plan that includes transportation demand management (TDM) strategies. The Plan addressed issues related to the transit system, alternate transportation modes and opportunities for parking demand reduction through transportation demand management initiatives.

3. A financial model for implementing plan recommendations, including costs to implement future parking programs, a review of alternate revenue sources, and projections of revenue and operating expenses for the next five years.

The completed PTMP provides Clemson University with the tools needed to generate and maintain a more cost-efficient and user-friendly parking and transportation system and a blueprint for successfully integrating that system with the needs of the surrounding Clemson community.
