What is UPARK?
UPARK is a satellite parking lot at Capitol-Humboldt and shuttle bus system developed to address the parking needs of commuting students, faculty and staff. On-campus parking is extremely limited, and parking on the streets surrounding UWM is also difficult because of restrictions which limit long-term parking in the largely residential neighborhood.

Who can use UPARK?

For Faculty and Staff the cost is $35.81 via payroll deduction. The permit may be purchased online at Transportation Services Online Portal.

How often do the buses run?
Buses operate at about 10-13 minute intervals and have two on-campus stops for drop offs and two different stops for pick ups. While the bus heads from the UPARK to the UWM Kenwood Campus, it will drop off at Cunningham and the UWM Library prior to heading to Kenilworth, Cambridge and RiverView. When head Northbound from RiverView, Cambridge, and Kenilworth to the UWM Kenwood Campus it will pick up at the UWM Student Union (on Maryland) and Sandburg Residence Hall before heading to the UPARK.
