Campus parking, Cambus, commuter programs, and Fleet Services will resume regular operations for the fall semester.
All parking and transportation operations at the UI will continue to rely on guidance from the Board of Regents, State of Iowa; the Iowa and Johnson County departments of public health; the Big Ten Conference; and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As such, the information provided on this page may change.
- Common spaces and high-touch surfaces in parking facilities will be disinfected following CDC guidelines. Equipment that customers interact with, including elevators and pay stations, will be disinfected by parking and transportation staff midday and overnight.
- Customers visiting the West Campus Transportation Center (WCTC) are encouraged to email or call ahead to reduce contact time. Customer occupancy will be limited to four people within the service office to allow for social distancing. All other customers will be asked to wait outside in second floor WCTC atrium.
- Payment at all parking meters can be made via the Passport Parking mobile app. Motorists who use hourly parking facilities will be directed to complete payment via the in-lane pay station. Parking cashiers will be available to answer questions and assist customers using the hourly parking options.
- The Motorist Assistance Program is still being provided, but the processes will be modified to allow for social distancing.
Employees returning to work on campus will park in their assigned permit locations.
Employees working remotely have the option of cancelling their permits by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Permits issued to employees when they return to campus are subject to availability, as permits will continue to be assigned and issued for all lots.
When employees return to campus, they can add themselves to the waitlist(s) by visiting the parking system waitlist in Employee Self Service. The employee will be placed into the normal permit assignment process and assigned a spot based upon availability.
University policy and federal law require a face mask (cloth mask, disposable mask, or face shield with mask) that covers both the nose and mouth to be worn by all CAMBUS drivers and riders. CAMBUS mask policy
- Masks are available upon request to drivers and at some parking lot bus stops.
- Under the federal order, there are exemptions to the mask requirement for some persons with disabilities and for children under the age of two.
- Buses are disinfected each day with a solution approved by the EPA as effective against COVID-19. Each bus also receives UV light treatment that kills bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus, once every 48 hours.
- Driver barriers have been installed to reduce exposure between drivers and riders. Employees are provided with protective equipment and cleaning supplies for their work areas.
- Riders are asked to do their best to disperse themselves throughout the bus as much as possible.
Commuter Programs will continue to operate. Several changes have been implemented to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Participants in these programs should follow the recommendations of the CDC.
Employee Van Pool
The Employee Van Pool will continue to operate. Masks are not required. However, if you are not fully vaccinated, you are strongly encouraged to continue wearing a mask in the van pool. If you are fully vaccinated, you should feel comfortable continuing to wear a mask if you choose. Please be respectful of one another; do not harass a fellow employee for choosing to wear, or not wear, a mask.
