Parking and Commuter Services Launches New, User-Friendly Website
Cal Poly’s Parking and Commuter Services department has launched a new website to better inform the campus community. The former parking website has been completely re-designed with the user in mind – providing quick, easy access to information on services, policies and events.
The website has a modern design with intuitive navigation, based on an analysis of site traffic patterns. The new structure helps users quickly find information with “Quick Links” to the most visited areas of the website. The homepage also displays “Closures Today” with regular updates on parking lot closures. A “Parking on Campus” section provides information on parking lots, space types and pay kiosk locations.
The website is a collaboration of Parking and Commuter Services and Cal Poly’s Administration and Finance Division (AFD)’s Network and Technology Services. It is the first of many websites that AFD will be revamping to enhance the web experience for the campus community.
