New Smart Parking Meters (click here for more)

WKU Parking and Transportation Services has initiated a trial of 15 “smart” parking meters which have been installed throughout campus. 

Meters provide short-term parking near buildings for loading, unloading, deliveries, and short meetings.  The maximum time honored is posted at the meter. 

A useful benefit of the solar-powered meters is they accept credit cards as well as coins.  These meters also help PTS enforce short-term parking on campus. 

Here are some common “dos” and “don’ts” when using the meters: 

  • DO use the smart meters for short-term parking only.  Maximum time allowed is posted. 
  • DO use credit cards if needed.  A minimum time of 45 minutes ($.75) is charged.
  • DO use coins when needed.
  • DO give us your feedback at transportation@wku.edu.
  • DON’Tabuse short-term parking.  You can only buy time once at a meter.
    • The meters will not give additional time over the maximum even if you insert more coins or charge to a credit card. 
  • DON’T wait to pay.  Time starts immediately when you pull into the space. 
  • DON’T get a ticket by staying past expired time.  The “smart” meters alert PTS enforcement officers when abuses occur. 

Please contact Parking and Transportation Services at 270-745-2361 or transportation@wku.edu with any problems. 

Thank you,

PTS
