University of Colorado urges freshmen not to bring cars to campus

Jan. 9, 2011
Number of freshman parking permits have dropped by more than 20 percent compared with previous year

From The Boulder Daily Camera: More freshmen at the University of Colorado have decided to leave their cars at home when they move to Boulder to begin classes, an emerging trend that is delighting campus planners and environmental czars at the institution. Only 852 freshmen bought parking permits this school year, said Frank Bruno, vice chancellor for administration at CU. That's more than a 20 percent drop since last school year -- and a dramatic decline since 2005 when more than 1,400 students bought parking permits.
