Dear UMB Community,
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the parking and transportation industry in several ways, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s (UMB) Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) has been impacted. Fortunately, the return to campus promises to bring a bit of light to each and every one of us. With the return to campus imminent, PTS wanted to highlight several operational changes: 
Starting June 1, 2021:
  • All garage rates will return to normal posted garage rates.
  • All parkers will need to return to their assigned garage location, with the exception of students, who can park in the Penn Street and Baltimore Grand garages until Aug. 1.
  • Saratoga Street Garage will reopen to normal business hours: 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Saratoga side-gate entrance will close at 8 p.m.
  • Pay daily program will open for new parkers and will reopen for permit renewals of current parkers.
  • Saratoga parkers will need to return to their home garage assignment.
  • Saratoga electric vehicle (EV) chargers will need to return to their home garage.
  • Pearl Street Garage operating hours will be 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

  • The UMB shuttle will return for use by all of the UMB campus community.
  • Faculty, staff, affiliates, and non-students will pay per ride.
Starting in mid-October
