Students face further parking challenges this fall semester

Rio Hondo College roads surrounding parking lot A and the fitness center have been permanently changed into one-way roads, as of August 24.

The main roads affected by this change are Circle Drive, the entrance to parking lot E, and also the exit to parking lot E.

Signs will be placed around the campus to ensure safe circulation. Students should allow extra time to find parking, as the changes may increase campus traffic.

Rio Hondo student Kimberly Romero, 21, has been dealing with parking for quite some time, “I’ve been coming to Rio Hondo for two years. My first year I really struggled with parking which made me late for my classes. I decided to take the bus and I get to class on time.”

The college is offering overflow off-site parking at 12801 Crossroads Parkway South, City of Industry. The free shuttle is available from August 26- September 20, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Thursday.

Students should park in the Rio Hondo College designated spaces only. On-site security will be available, but  they should lock all vehicles as Rio Hondo is not responsible for any stolen items.
