#OPINION: What is frustrating to me is not MAPS’ decision to have all students and staff pay for parking, but for them to do so through a tier system that advantages those who can afford to pay the highest premiums.
For an hour on Wednesday, Feb. 15, a small band of students tried to make their voices heard at Stony Brook University’s West Campus fountain — nearly a week after the Mobility and Parking Services (MAPS) proposed to switch to a fully-paid parking model in August 2023.
Mobileware’s onTime commuter app provides users with transit schedules and ticketing information, and has launched a new feature that encourages users to carpool through prize incentives with the main objective of reducing carbon emissions.
On Tuesday, Sept. 7, Parking Services announced that residential parking zones five and seven will now be combined into one larger lot. The new zone now combines parking spaces in H, Mendelsohn, Chavez and Tubman communities.
A common criticism of Stony Brook — from students, faculty and outside observers alike — is our lack of school spirit. We’re a prestigious school, academically ranked 91st in the country, with Division I sports teams.
