The system that is supposed to indicate the number of free parking spaces at the various parking lots on campus doesn’t work properly. After several weeks, the supplier discovered a software issue, and has fixed the problem since. The system will be implemented anew this weekend.
License registration failure, license plates that are not recognized at the boom barriers, and regular campus card issues: these are some of the teething troubles of the paid parking system at TU/e. Safety & Security received over two hundreds questions a day about the new system that was implemented on April 15. The service expects to have solved most issues by this week.
Still a little ill at ease, he drove around campus. Taking modest turns, prioritizing reckless cyclists like a true gentleman, and cutting a tight curve every now and then. Oh well, it was only his first day at the office.
Are the bus services going to be intensified? Do you have to pay to park if you only come by car now and then? And must Executive Board members pay as well? Employees turn out to have quite a number of questions about the introduction of the Mobility Plan and paid parking.
The ‘gates’ to the NS train station and TU/e campus are a mere ten-minute walk apart. Still, starting next month, students and staff can take a bus to travel to and from TU/e. The bus makes its route four times an hour during peak hours (7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m.) and has four stops on campus.

Mobility plan TU/e
TU/e wants to transform its campus into a sustainable campus of nationwide importance and of international standing. The campus will get the appearance of a ‘city park’ with an increasing focus on the quality of the outdoor environment. The Green Strip (a traffic-free green central area) plays an important role in this ambition.
The current streetscape with parked cars does not correspond with the ambition of the TU/e to develop a city park. By ‘greening’ and making the campus more user friendly a large number of parking places will disappear, in the short and long term. TU/e wants employees to reconsider the way they commute: from January 2015 they have to pay a parking fee too: 2 euros a day.
