1390 words - 6 pages

Parking - Another Stress for University Students"They paved paradiseAnd put up a parking lot"- JONI MITCHELL, Big Yellow Taxi (1969)Although my drive to school takes only 10 minutes, I leave my house at 10:30 to be at my 11:30 class. At 10:40 I pull into the parking lot with what looks like one hundred other students. As I am wedged behind other anxious commuters I can only envision the convenience of another parking lot. Once in my classroom, I am late, thus frustrated - concentration in a three-hour class is going to be non-existent. Students at **** stress over finding a parking spot, although we should be more concerned with English papers, lab reports and math midterms. Discussions of the Greater Vancouver transit system, the stress, the cost, and inconvenience of parking, and fit solutions to the parking problem will explain how parking could be convenient, thus less stressful, for **** commuters if a multi-level parking garage were added.Of my new responsibilities as a college student, I expected parking to be the least time consuming and stressful. Stress became a product of the interaction between myself and my environment - the parking lot (Whitman and Spendlove and Clark 21). Parking so far away my first day of classes made me late, thus blistering with annoyance, but I knew I was not alone; almost the whole of my psychology class was red with exercise and aggravation. Justin Hull, a first year college student, complains that parking is a general annoyance, which subsequently leaves him less than focused for the majority of his first class. Also a commuter from Langley, Hull says that if he didn't have to allow himself another 25 minutes to find a parking spot, sleep could be pro-longed, or more importantly essential studying could be arranged.Parking spots are provided for convenience; however parking is nothing but an inconvenience. I consider myself lucky because I have the option of taking the bus, but what about the students that come from Surrey, Maple Ridge, and Langley? BC Transit has no convenient or affordable public transit amongst these cities, so accordingly those students are forced to drive. For one semester, if a student from Langley were to take the greyhound, one day a week, it would cost them $260.00 (www.greyhound.ca), which is incomparable to a "Pass Pack", a semester's worth of four monthly bus passes for BC transit buses, at $85.00 (Canada. Central Fraser Valley Transit System: Rider's Guide 6). Kole Harden, also a commuter from Langley, attempted to take the greyhound once a week, in Winter Semester 2005, to avoid parking and the cost of owning a car. However, he soon abandoned the greyhound because of the cost, and mostly the inconvenience - the distance between the greyhound station and **** is 1.26 miles, which would require a long walk, or a cab bill (www.mapquest.ca). Harden now finds himself driving to ****, but is hoping the transit system will create affordable connections between cities. In addition,...
