Jesse James Deconto reports on the University of North Carolina‘s attempts to make its Carolina North satellite campus more transit-friendly. The two current suggestions are to reduce parking ratios over the next twenty years or to put stricter limits on parking. This is in many ways the opposite of what BYU is doing. BYU opposes Bus Rapid Transit from the future Provo FrontRunner stop and has done little to encourage students to take advantage of UTA’s award-winning bus service, and has played with the idea of alleviating the horrendous parking problems at BYU by adding more parking as opposed to encouraging fewer cars. The last thing a college student needs is the added expense of owning and maintaining a car. UNC’s students should consider themselves lucky.
