Valet Parking Introduced at Florida International University

florida international universityParking on campus has long been one of most popular gripes of college students. But Florida International University has found a solution for its parking problems – valet! The West Miami-Dade campus has 38,000 students and 14,000 parking spaces, and it doesn’t take a math major to know that some students are going to be left scrambling for a space to make it to class in time.

The valet service is an experiment, with the pilot program running for three months. The service costs $5 for the first two hours and up to $12 per day; campus parking meters cost $1 per hour and up to $8 per day.

Columbia University in NYC is beginning a similar service, while USC currently charges $10 for the first two hours for its valet service.
