8. Transportation and Parking
Faculty who ride bicycles on campus are subject to all state laws pertaining to bicycles. The University Police Department does not require the registration of bicycles, but they strongly suggest registration for identification purposes. The purpose of registration is to prevent theft and assist in the recovery of stolen bicycles. For more information on bicycle regulations, refer to the brochure on traffic and parking rules and regulations.
- Fleet Services
Fleet Services provide economical, high-quality, and safe vehicles for Texas A&M University-Commerce faculty for official university business. Faculty who wish to reserve a vehicle should contact the Motor Pool Coordinator with the Police Department. Reservations should be made well in advance of the planned departure. In addition, all faculty who drive a university vehicle must have a Department of Motor Vehicle Record (DMV) check and will be assigned a driver rating.
All vehicles, as defined by state laws, operated on the Texas A&M University-Commerce campus must be registered with the University Police Department, and the permit must be visibly displayed. Current parking permits are required 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Faculty with blue permits are allowed to park in blue, purple, and green areas only. Parking is not allowed in areas restricted by signs, including but not limited to, areas not designed as a parking space, admission guest areas, disabled zones, improper zones, loading zones, and service vehicle areas. At the beginning of each fall semester, faculty will have the opportunity to purchase their permits online and pick them up at the Cashier’s Office in the McDowell Business Administration Building between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. If faculty miss this deadline, they should purchase their permits directly from the Cashier’s Office during these hours. It is important to note that the purchase of a parking decal does not guarantee the holder a parking space on the premises of Texas A&M University-Commerce. For more information on parking regulations, please refer the brochure on traffic and parking rules and regulations.
