Our Mission

Our ‘Unpark Yourself’ campaign is rooted in making the transportation of those in our community easier, and more efficient. With 30,000+ students and 20,000+ faculty and staff, the University of Iowa and the Parking and Transportation Department are encouraging those in the community to consider alternate transportation options. 

In making the choice to ‘Unpark Yourself’ not only do you save money; you decrease campus traffic, and ultimately help fellow members of your community to create a more sustainable campus.

According to a 2017 study by AAA, the true cost of owning and operating a vehicle is $8,469 a year if driven 15,000 miles per year. Calculate how much you could save by changing your primary travel mode for your commute: transportation.uiowa.edu/cost-calculator.
