Vehicles and Parking in Gothic
All RMBL Users must register their vehicles in the Admin Office in Gothic when they check in.
Parking fees are in effect between June 1 and August 24, 2013. Parking is free outside these dates, but vehicles must still be parked in designated parking locations only (see 2013 Parking Map). There are separate parking rates for Principal Investigator (PI) Research Vehicles and for Student/RA/Guest Vehicles. PIs can purchase parking permits at the ‘Research Vehicle’ rate for vehicles that are used by the research team, regardless of who owns the vehicle. This is allowable on the condition that the vehicles are primarily used for research. Parking permits may be transferred between individuals; for example, between members of a carpool group or from a PI to members of his or her research team. Scientists owning vehicles through RMBL are required to pay parking fees in Gothic.
- Parking permits cost $5.00/day per vehicle for Principal Investigators and Visiting Scientists, with a maximum charge of $300 for the summer.
- Parking permits for Undergraduate Students, Research Assistants, and Overnight Guests are mandatory and cost $7.50/day per vehicle, with a maximum charge of $450 for the summer.
- Staff parking fees will be set by RMBL Administration.
