A: Citations can be appealed either by coming to one of the three Transportation Services customer service desks or can be appealed online. If you are not a student or an employee of the University, in order to appeal a citation you must first pay for the citation and then file an appeal. Payment creates a bond. If your appeal is successful, the citation amount will be refunded to you. Appeals need to be made within ten days of when the citation was written. Click here to appeal online.


Q: How do I report cleanliness or maintenance issues in a lot or ramp?

Q: Can I get my parking validated when parking at the UW Hospital and American Family Children's Hospital?

A: The UW Hospital validates parking for Clinic and Outpatient Surgery Patients at information and registration desks in the UW Hospital and the American Family Children's Hospital. In-patients are entitled to one parking pass when admitted, and they decide to whom the pass should be issued. This parking pass serves as their validation while the pass is valid (effective on the day of admission and renewable at no charge should it expire before discharge). All other need to pay for their parking at the hospital ramps.
