GSA will charge employees for parking

Federal News Radio
General Services Administration employees will no longer be able to park for free at federal buildings. Citing a "responsibility to increase the sustainability of the Federal government," the GSA will require employees to pay for parking starting August 1.
The announcement was made in an email to employees, the GSA confirmed to Federal News Radio. The policy change applies to employees parking in the National Capital Region.
Employees who currently have parking assignments will not lose them under the new policy, and will have the option to opt-out of parking if they don't want to pay for it. Information on pricing and payment will be sent out to employees will be sent out in the next few weeks, according to the email.
MEMORANDUM FOR ALL GSA EMPLOYEES IN THE NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION
FROM: CATHLEEN C. KRONOPOLUS, REGIONAL COMMISSIONER, PUBLIC BUILDINGS SERVICE, NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION
SUBJECT: Important changes to parking In the National Capital Region
As of August 1, 2011, all GSA personnel (employees and contractors) who park in a federal building or in a GSA-leased location in the National Capital Region will be required to pay for parking.
GSA recognizes that it has a responsibility to increase the sustainability of the Federal government and can do so by reducing the environmental impact of the green house gas emissions we generate. One way we can do that is by reducing incentives such as free parking. Charging for parking is commensurate with common private sector practice.
GSA encourages other modes of transportation (biking, rail, bus, etc.) and the use of telework/mobile work.
Priority for assigning parking spaces will remain the same. Additional information will be sent in the next couple of weeks including a link that will describe the process, payment, and points of contact.
There will be no changes in parking space assignments - if you have a space today, you will not lose it when the payment program takes effect. In the event you do not wish to pay for your parking space, effective August 1st, you will be able to cancel your space.
