University Parking Services is completing installation for its new License Plate Recognition (LPR) program. The new system reads vehicle license plates to determine if the vehicle is allowed to park in certain lots on campus instead of relying on the plastic hangtags or sticker permits used in the past. Now those needing a parking permit can register and pay for an ePermit all online and will no longer need a physical permit.
Eric Crouch, managing director of University Parking Services, said Texas Tech is one of the first major universities to implement such a system. He said the system will save the university money while helping to manage approximately 30,000 visitors to campus each day.
