Motorcycle Parking

In order to accommodate the increased demand for motorcycle parking and encourage sustainability on the RIT campus, Parking and Transportation Services has increased the number of motorcycle parking spaces throughout campus. These additional spaces are not available from November 1, 2013 - March 31, 2014, which are located in lots D, K, S, T, and U. The new areas are front row and identified by temporary signs. Courtesy of PATS, parking for motorcycles is free; a Reserved parking permit is not required in any of the specifically designated Motorcycle areas. Please see map for exact locations.
