The Parking and Transportation department at Georgia College has been working hard this summer to bring exciting changes to the campus community that will make services more easily accessible and also provide upgrades and improvements to existing equipment and facilities.
The biggest change to Parking and Transportation will be its new home; The Depot. Relocation is scheduled for completion in September, and will provide easier access for students, faculty and staff to conduct their parking business at a more central location. Another facility upgrade is the improvement of the shuttle stop shelter adjacent to the Library and Information Technology Center.New equipment upgrades include the addition of three brand new turtle vans to the fleet of rental shuttles available to the campus community. One of the shuttles is ADA compliant and all of the shuttles provide upgraded amenities to passengers as well as additional space in comparison to the 15-passenger vans they replaced. Hertz on Demand also had a new vehicle join its fleet, a new 2012 Toyota Camry that is available to rent by the hour or by the day. Existing equipment was upgraded as nearly all of the Georgia College shuttles now have WiFi capability.
