BGSU retirees may register their vehicle through Parking Services for campus parking beginning August 1, 2016. The permit, to be hung from the rear view mirror, is valid for one year. Visit Parking Services at 1 College Park Office Bldg. with vehicle make, model, year and license plate number. Questions? Contact Parking Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-372-2776. There is no charge for a retiree permit.
Next year Parking will transition to a plate recognition software system. Once all the bugs are worked out the parking tags will no longer be needed. Parking Services will just point a camera at a vehicle's license plate and check it against a database of registered vehicles. If it doesn't match, a ticket is issued.
