Parking and Transportation Updates

Can-structionCanned Food and Toy Drive to Benefit INOVA Children’s Hospital 

Would you like to help someone in need? Parking Services is collecting toy and food donations at the Parking Services offices at the Arlington, Fairfax, and SciTech Campuses beginning Monday, November 12. Donate a toy or food and reduce the cost of your parking ticket by up to $20 for one ticket and up to $60 for a maximum of three citations. Or, if you prefer, use the $20 credit toward a permit upgrade.   

Donations benefit INOVA Children’s Hospital and the Patriot Pantry.
