License Plate Recognition Technology Now Used to Monitor Parking on Campus

Boise State University’s Department of Public Safety is now leveraging license plate recognition technology on campus, which allows for more efficient monitoring of vehicles parked on campus.

Permitted parking on campus requires that a vehicle have two things: 1) display a valid zone permit, and 2) have a valid license plate registered. If a vehicle has only one or the other, that vehicle would be in violation of the parking regulations. All permit holders are required to have up-to-date license plate information for all vehicles parked on campus. This information can be viewed and updated in the NuPark portal.

If a parking permit is being transferred between multiple vehicles, ensure all vehicles are registered on the permit holder’s account. Up to 10 vehicles are permitted to be registered to a single account; however, the single permit allows only one vehicle to be parked on campus at a time.

In addition, please ensure all license plates listed on the account are accurate and up to date. If a “placeholder” was used, be sure to update to the actual license plate as soon as possible to avoid receiving a citation.

Parking permit account information may be accessed via boisestate.nupark.com/portal/.

Broken Water Line Closes Part of University Drive Tuesday 10-2-2017

UPDATED at 11:30 a.m. with information on repair work:

A water line under University Drive near the Student Union Building broke Monday evening and forced the closure of much of the main artery through campus. The break was due to structural failure of a section of 1990 PVC pipe in University Drive. A repair to the main line was completed overnight and the broken section of PVC was replaced with ductile iron pipe.

During a major leak it is not uncommon for roadways to become unstable when large volumes of water mix with gravel and bending materials under the asphalt. Any amount of weight over the leak has the potential to break through the asphalt and fall into a fluidized bed of water and gravel. Work on the roadway is proceeding this morning and an asphalt crew is scheduled to re-pave the road on Wednesday, Oct. 4.

UPDATED at 8 a.m.:

A water line under University Drive near the Student Union Building broke Monday evening and forced the closure of much of the main artery through campus.

The class schedule continued as planned, with a few classes relocated from the Honors College. Students and faculty affected were be notified by email.

Breakfast was served at the Boise River Cafe in the SUB starting at 7 a.m.

At least through Wednesday morning or until road repair is done, the intersection of University and Lincoln will be closed. Traffic coming from Broadway will be diverted at Michigan Avenue, but the Lincoln Avenue Parking Garage will remain open. Lincoln Avenue will be closed between Belmont and University. Traffic coming from Capitol Boulevard will be diverted at Chrisway Drive. Traffic coming from Juanita and Joyce streets will be allowed westbound down University.

The Brady Street Garage is open as well.

University shuttles will divert around the affected area, heading south on Michigan, west on Belmont, north on Joyce and the continue on their normal route west on University.

Drivers are encouraged to enter the side of campus closest to their destination. Some lots north of university only will be accessible via Cesar Chavez Lane.

Water pressure was affected throughout campus, though Suez Water isolated the leak to a smaller area Monday night, and the pressure increased through most campus buildings. The Student Union Building and the Honors College and Sawooth Hall were without water overnight, but the water was restored by early Tuesday morning.

Campus dining services made take-away sack meals and handed out water. The Rec Center opened for restrooms and showers throughout the night. Several portable restrooms were brought in, as well.

Faculty, staff and students with issues to report should call (208) 426-4991.

Switch Up Your Commute for October’s ‘Ridetober’

Have you ever bussed, biked, walked, carpooled or caught a shuttle to campus as part of your daily commute? If so, you’re not alone – Boise State has over 1,700 students and employees currently using the university’s RideShare Platform to plan their commutes.

During the month of October, commuters will have even more incentive to get out of their single-occupancy vehicles as the Ada County Highway Department’s (ACHD) Commuteride program launches Ridetober, a month-long challenge to Treasure Valley residents to use smart transportation every day in October.

Individuals can sign up to participate here.

Every day participants walk, bike, vanpool, carpool or take the bus to work and track their commute on MyCommuterCrew.com, they are entered to win daily drawings for $25 Downtown Boise Association gift cards from ACHD Commuteride, or $200 and $100 grand prize drawings. The more smart commutes an individual makes, the more chances they have to win.

The Boise State RideShare platform was built and is maintained by ACHD Commuteride. The ride-matching service can help find potential carpool, vanpool, bicycling or walking partners who work or go to school at Boise State. The program also is a commute logger that tracks users’ monetary savings over traditional single-occupancy driving, as well as logging how many calories cyclists and walkers burn during their commutes. Users of the platform earn points for their commutes, which are handed into Commuteride for prizes.

The popular platform helped earn the university’s platinum status during last year’s May in Motion competition, and puts the university in the top 100 Treasure Valley organizations with an alternative transportation benefits program.

Free Parking, No Kidding

Now you have a new, free option for student parking. The Student Satellite Zone is exclusively for currently enrolled students and allows you to park in the lots at Dona Larsen Park, Boas Soccer and Tennis Complex and the Elder Street Park and Ride.

Even though it’s free, you’ll still need to get a permit to display in your car window. If you’ve already paid for a 2017-18 permit, you can exchange it for a Student Satellite Zone permit. Just bring your current license plate number to the Boise State Transit Center and they’ll take care of you.

The Boise State shuttle’s orange route stops near Dona Larsen Park, while ValleyRide Bus #3 has a stop near the Elder Street and Vista Avenue intersection. Pick up a free ValleyRide bus sticker at the Transit Center or Information Desk in the Student Union Building.

If you live on campus and don’t use your car often, the Elder Street Park and Ride lot is available for overnight parking. As with several other parking venues, these lots will be closed on designated occasions for athletic events. You’ll be notified via email on those occasions.
