What you need to know about parking and getting around campus

By News@TheU
Parking enforcement on the Coral Gables Campus (including the Gables One Tower) begins Monday, Aug. 17, and a valid University permit will be required. Learn more about changes to the Hurry ’Canes Shuttle service and ways to save while traveling to and from campus.

Editor’s Note: As the University of Miami reopens and welcomes students, faculty, and staff back to campus for the Fall 2020 semester, our “Campus Ready” updates will help the University community navigate how to eat, shop, stay fit, and more, while putting our health and well-being first.

Color restrictions remain unchanged and will be enforced Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The nights and weekend permit is only valid after 4 p.m. on weekdays and at any time during the weekend.

What’s New

The Hurry ’Canes Shuttle bus service, which also resumes on Aug. 17., includes the following new physical distancing protocols.

  • Masks are required at all times when waiting and using the shuttle.
  • Board the bus through the front door and exit through the rear door.
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance from others when waiting for a shuttle bus.
  • Adhere to the maximum capacity of each bus and refrain from utilizing the restricted seating.
  • Find a complete list of guidelines and view the fall semester shuttle schedule here.

Interested in other ways to get around campus? The Department of Parking and Transportation offers a variety of sustainable, safe, and often discounted ways to travel. By registering through the UBike program, the University community has access to free bike locks through the University of Miami Police Department, on-campus repair stations and air pumps, and safe options for storage.

Students, faculty, and staff looking for alternative travel options—such as Miami-Dade transit, Brightline, or Tri-Rail—can explore the variety of programs, discounts, and sustainable options here.

“The Parking and Transportation team is excited to welcome students back to campus and we will continue to work together to uphold the safe and sustainable practices that ensure that the health and well-being of our community remains a priority.”

— Richard Sobaram, executive director, Parking and Transportation

In an effort to encourage physical distancing, the Department of Parking and Transportation requests that customers complete transactions by email or telephone as much as possible, including all parking permit transactions.
