Reduce AUT parking costs on North & South Campuses
This petition made change with 895 supporters!
AUT announced an increase in the cost of student parking on North & South Campuses in January 2017, from $6.00 to $7.50 per day. After receiving an abundance of student feedback, Auckland Student Movement @ AUT (AuSM) are looking to take action, suggesting the cost of parking at AUT is capped at a 20c increase per annum. This proposal includes reducing the 2017 fee from $7.50 to $6.20 per day.
With high rent prices, further increased AUT fees and Studylink failing to match the demanding costs to live in Auckland, the financial difficulty for students to gain tertiary education is only hardened by this increase in parking costs.
We suggest that the parking is capped at $6.20 for 2017, and for future years the maximum increase is capped at 20c per annum.
AUT use Wilson Parking to manage the car parks on North & South Campuses. The late fee for parking is $45.00 at AUT, where at MIT (also a Wilson run carpark) the fine is $12.00. In addition to this if you pay for parking via card, rather than coins you must pay a 50c transaction fee. This means the cost of parking for many students is actually $8.00 per day.
