UCPD Information Alert: Pokémon Go Safety Tip

In recent weeks the campus, as well as the entire nation, have seen a rapid increase in the popularity of the smartphone based Pokémon Go game, in which players are required to walk about their environment in order to accomplish tasks in the game. For almost as long as the game has been available, news outlets have carried story after story of players suffering injury or becoming the victim of a crime because they were so engrossed in the game. UCPD would like to take a moment to ask players to heed the warning displayed at the start of the game: Remain aware of your surroundings. That Charizard is certainly rare and is an amazing find, but it will mean nothing if you are hit by a vehicle because you stepped into the roadway in your attempt to catch it. Be aware of your surroundings; we understand how absorbing the game can be, but please do not allow yourself to become so absorbed that you put your physical safety in jeopardy.

Budget and Planning

The Budget and Planning reports provide data on TAPS' current financial position for 2011/12 and projections through 2021/22.

TAPS Summary of Financial Position 2012/13 - 2017/18

The TAPS Summary of Financial Position 2012/13 - 2017/18 presentation provides highlights of TAPS' 5 year operating plan.  This summary was created in Winter 2013 and while some of the information has changed, it nonetheless provides a good representation of the departments financial position and long range plans. The summary includes background details on TAPS revenue and expenses for 2011/12, projections for 2012/13 and a recovery and growth plan for 2014/15 through 2017/18.

Long Range Parking Model

The TAPS Long Range Parking Model provides an operating plan and budget through 2021/22 (updated in Spring 2014) and consists of 5 major components:

Projected Operating Income
Projected Operating Expenses
Parking Lot Renewal and Replacement Projects
Equipment Replacement
Parking Space Supply and Demand

Detailed Operating Budget Information

TAPS' operating budget is divided into three distinct activities:  Permits, Fines and Forfeitures, and Transit Operations.  Each  year TAPS submits its budget proposal to the Office of Resource Planning and Budget and ultimately to the EVC/Provost.  Included below are the selected tables for the operating budgets submitted and approved by the EVC/Provost for fiscal year 2014/15.  Information from these tables are combined to perform the revenue and expenditure calculations used in the long range parking model. A table illustrating rate comparisons with other UC campuses is provided in Tab G of the TAPS Parking Services file below.
