To the Editor:
I am writing in response to the article about CSU becoming a more pedestrian-friendly campus. I do agree that CSU is ready to completely close off the campus to cars, in an effort to make pedestrian traffic safer, but being that I am forced to drive to campus I feel that another look should be given to what will happen to the parking situation.
I live about a 30 minute drive from campus in the hills, where the Transfort bus system does not have stops, so my only option is to drive, and where will I park? As it is, the parking situation around the campus on side streets is almost nonexistent, and with the existing small amount of parking on campus removed my only options are to park far away and walk twice as far as I am now, or to park somewhere that I can hop on a bus which puts my driving time up to an hour.
I do not think this is fair, and feel that with the “pedestrian core” there should also be a “parking garage core” area where students like myself can get to school in a timely manner without the hassle of finding parking.
