Director's Message

Welcome to the University of Miami’s Parking and Transportation Services Website. We have provided information that we hope will assist you in making your parking and mobility experience at the University as pleasant as possible.

We are committed to providing safe and reliable parking and mobility options that enhance sustainability for the University community. Our department is responsible for the overall management of parking facilities, traffic control, maintaining an effective commuting system, and meeting the transportation needs of the Coral Gables campus.

Our department offers several programs to assist the University of Miami community in meeting their parking and mobility needs. The Hurry ‘Cane Shuttles is a quick and convenient means of getting around campus. In addition, Recreational Shuttles are available to transport campus community members to popular off campus location. You may also choose to commute independently by walking or biking. Think about all the benefits—No need to search for parking space, it is fast and convenient, it reduces pollution, saves energy, allows you to get some exercise all while enjoying our beautiful campus.

We encourage to browse material provided about Metrorail, Zipcar, Motorist Assistance Program, UBike, and Carpool as well as other programs offered.

Please take some time to review information on the eligibility and availability for your parking status (StudentsFaculty and Staff, Vendor/Contractor, and Visitor). We also encourage you to familiarize yourself with our parking facilities prior to arriving in order to ensure that your needs are met.

Don’t forget to visit our website often for updates and information regarding parking and traffic that may affect you. Finally, we want to hear from you. Please feel free to provide your feedback regarding our services at parking.gables@miami.edu. You may also contact me directly if I can be of assistance at rsobaram@miami.edu.
