Parking and Transit Options for Faculty Teaching in Newly Converted Classroom Buildings

Transportation Services has developed a resource that identifies parking options for faculty to access newly converted classroom buildings. Departmentally purchased business permits may be coupled with any valid A&M permits to allow parking in the lots and garages identified as “University Business Authorized” on the Business Parking Map.

Bus route information is available at m.tamu.edu, for those who wish to access the transit system or to inform students of transit options. AggieMap offers a trip planning feature to help Aggies compare walking, biking, busing and driving between destinations on campus. How to use the Aggie Map for trip planning

Should any faculty or essential staff have difficulty accessing parking in these locations after 5 p.m., contact Transportation Services directly at parking@tamu.edu or 979-862-7275 (PARK) for assistance.
