Parking and Transportation improves parking system with LPR technology

Wednesday, June 16, 2021
University of Iowa Parking and Transportation has implemented a license plate recognition (LPR) system that allows a vehicle license plate to also be used as the university parking permit. Beginning Aug. 1, most faculty, staff, and student permit holders will not need to display a physical permit in their vehicles. LPR increases parking efficiency, provides convenience for permit holders, and greatly reduces the amount of paper and plastic waste produced.
