UMD & the City of Duluth are making it easy to pay for meter parking from your smartphone
Supporting Sustainable Practices
We proudly support UMD's efforts toward creating a sustainable environment by providing programs motivated to reduce the amount of driving to campus. Like most institutions, we only offer a limited number of parking spaces, which then demands alternative modes to get to campus.
It's here! Our Bulldog CarShare program is available. Join now for only $10! It provides anyone the ability to check out a vehicle and use around the Duluth area. As a benefit, students are still able to have the freedom of having their own vehicle, however with limited parking spaces on campus, we hope to decrease the amount of parking needed.

Additionally, we collaborate with the Duluth Transportation Authority (DTA) to ensure the feasibility of taking the DTA bus around the city, which is an option many students, faculty, and staff utilize each semester.

UMD Parking & Transportation Study
A comprehensive parking and transportation study was conducted for the UMD campus by SRF Consulting Group, Inc. in 2015. The purpose of the study was to provide a complete review and analysis of the current and future campus parking and transportation supply and demand as well as the rate structure. Recommendations to meet current and future needs were based on data-driven analysis of benchmarks, best practices, and UMD campus information. The final report was presented to the campus in January 2016.
