SAN DIEGO — University California, San Diego Transportation Services announced a new policy to restrict freshmen from purchasing parking permits starting in the 2016–2017 school year, The Guardian reported.

The policy is meant to encourage freshmen who live on campus to consider other options for transportation to reduce the amount of parking spaces that are simply used as storage, according to the report.

“Exceptions to the new policy will be provided on a case-by-case basis and determined by a committee of students and staff,” according to Transportation Services. “We encourage all students to use the Triton U-Pass whenever possible. If you live close to campus, U-Pass will enable you to ride MTS or NCTD transit to campus easily. Even those who live further away are encouraged to find commute solutions — use free, local transit hub parking and ride transit to campus via your U-Pass whenever possible.”
