UA students could soon pay more to park in specific lots

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

With thousands of students coming and going, parking at the University of Arizona can be a headache. 

That's why new changes are coming in hopes of making a parking spot easier to find. 

Right now students look for spots in lots labeled 'Zone 1.' These lots are available all around campus.  But they fill up fast and students end up driving around wasting time and causing traffic.

After an increase in complaints from drivers a new system is in the works. 

Mark Napier with the UA Transportation and Parking says Zone 1 parking lots south of Speedway will be converted to lot-specific areas, meaning students can purchase a permit to park in one specific lot instead of driving around.  The permit will be more expensive, about $110 more; the extra revenue will go towards new programs like a smart phone app that tracks the UA shuttle.

The parking changes go into effect in August.
