Rutgers Transportation Director explains decision to eliminate 50 parking spots along College Avenue
Drivers accustomed to parking along College Avenue were met with a surprise earlier this year when the University announced that the parking spaces along the street would be terminated. The decision eliminated 50 parking spaces along College Avenue between Huntington and Hamilton Streets in favor of bicycle and bus lanes, according to a press release the University released in January. Jack Molenaar, senior director of Transportation Services, said that students and residents of New Brunswick alike should not be concerned over the loss of spaces and that there are numerous alternatives provided by both the city and the University. Molenaar said permit-holding students are encouraged to use the College Avenue parking deck. “There is currently enough parking on the College Avenue campus for all users,” Molenaar said.
