Use Park and Ride Wednesday!

University Urges Park and Ride Service
Tomorrow to Relieve Congestion

A large influx of campus visitors Wednesday has prompted Texas A&M international University to offer a one-day “Park and Ride” service to help alleviate congestion and parking difficulties tomorrow.

On Wednesday, Oct. 29, TAMIU will welcome approximately 2000 students to campus as part of Laredo College Night from 5 - 7 p.m. In addition, the University is an early voting site, which will also generate increased traffic. This will create serious traffic congestion on campus for students, staff and faculty. There will be minimal parking on campus.

In order to relieve expected traffic and parking congestion, the University is making available, free of charge, a Park and Ride service from the Laredo Entertainment Center to the campus beginning at 7 a.m. and continuing till 10 p.m. Buses will run continuously throughout the day from the LEC to TAMIU, with drop off at the Student Center. All students, staff and faculty are asked to make use of the Park and Ride service.

The parking lots on the West Side of the University will be closed on Wednesday at the entrance to West Road at 7 a.m. Only those wishing to vote or who live in the Village will be allowed on West Road. The parking lots will re-open at 6:00 p.m. for those attending Laredo College Night as guests or staff only.

University Police will direct traffic throughout Wednesday, routing traffic appropriately.
