'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

Parking and Transportation Services Director Richard Rind says that while space is guaranteed to drivers in the garage their permit was initially for, they now have the option to park in the other two when space is available. 

Pearson Lot and Pearson Gate permit holders now have access to the CFA garage, as well. 

Rind says the changes are intended to reduce the lengthy walks some commuters have to take from their parking spots to their destinations on campus, as well as cut back on additional parking costs. 

The additional access to the parking locations mentioned above has been added to permit holders’ UD ID cards, and is available for use immediately.
