These funds will allow Auburn University to continue its development and execution of a plan to make the campus more pedestrian friendly. The study will consist of a number of major activities including the development of a plan for an intra-campus transit system to access various parts of campus and travel from exterior parking areas. The study will also develop a central receiving and distribution system, and will review the current transit system and parking fee system. Finally, the study will examine a short term and long term “game day” parking plan.
Sen. Shelby said, “Auburn University continues to grow and expand, and this study will afford them the opportunity to develop a plan that will enhance the safety of their students in high vehicle-traffic areas. I am pleased the Federal Transit Administration has released these funds so Auburn may continue to work on this important project.”
