    AUT: New motorcycle parking

    MODS - can you pls make this a sticky? thanks

    Update: 2017
    Following the demolition of the WL St Paul Wilson car park the AUT replacement is WO Wakefield St Wilson car park. Students will find several motorbike parks throughout the different levels. Further information and updates can be found at the link below:

    https://www.facebook.com/AutMotorbikeParkingCoordinator

    Please all follow the rules and do not park outside of the clearly marked motorbike area. There is other public parking available if full - ie. outside WT building.

    There is also marked motorbike parking at other campuses.

    AUT staff should contact the AUT motorbike coord. (see the facebook page/ motorbike@aut.ac.nz) to enquire about WY. WY parking requires card access.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After much negotiation AUT has created a fantastic new facility for motorcycle parking for staff and students. The ground floor of the Wilson parking on St Paul St is now dedicated to Motorbikes (as marked out). AUT staff and students can use this facility free - just ride in and out. This represents a significant investment of the University, and feedback to pass onto them to show that this is appreciated and used will be important in keeping this open long-term.

    In the meanwhile the review of parking outside the WF Business building is coming towards it end. It may be some parking is retained here although all may be relocated to the Wilson.

    Until further notice if you do park at WF pls follow the regs below - but pls start the transition to using the secure, undercover St Pauls Wilson park. My thanks to all of you who inputted into the discussion as these have formed an important part of the process.

    >
    The long-term bike parking solution for the City Campus is now Wilson on St Paul as above. For any bikes and scooters are still using the space outside the business school building until further notice keeping this in order is crucial. Currently common sense rules are in place - do NOT:

    - park here if you can use St Pauls Wilson free
    - ride across the pedestrian area of the cafe front
    - park obsructing the main glass entrance-way and fire-access station
    - park obstructing clear access to the benched area for pedestrians
    - box other bikes in
    - park on the pevement area obstructing the way around the building and getting us a bad rep

    DO

    - use the Wilson on St Pauls
    - park neatly along the 'back wall' area in one neat line
    - park well to the right side (from road) of the larger area away from the benches
    - be considerate to other uses
    - tell people to self-police this system
    - find alterate parking - ie. the Civic, the Library, St Paul st, if the area is packed

    I am giving tickets out to bikes that contravene these rules, and taking photos of the offenders and keeping a log.
    I am also putting every so often a reminder of these principles to the bikes parked.

    I need you all to spread news of the new facility to other AUT riders.

    Finally if any one else swears at me for advising on sensible parking practices this will no longer be tolerated. Thanks for most of your patience and help.

    Sweet! I thought we were always allowed to park in the Wilson?

    Secondly, I think the people you need to worry about the most are the scooter riders. They don't seem to give two shits about anyone, and will park ANYWHERE, including obstructing the whole front area of the business building (Had a chat with you on that day)

    And unfortunately, they won't be on this forum, so I think it would be best to post up signs of some sort, AND maybe talk to these guys in person.

    Thanks for your reply. I really like your bike.

    For the Wilson, motorbikes can part out-of-the-way in some and they will turn a blind eye. But this is a designated official area that is roped off right by the guy in the booth to watch over the bikes - all for us. No need to park out the way in dark corners now.

    I do talk to the scooter riders, and this morning I posted information on each bike that was down there (about 30 bikes), which I will keep doing. Currently there are no signs because no final decission has been made for the business school forecourt. But keeping it tidy may help our case and is just common sense.

    Thats is really sweet. Last time I was in that parking, I saw half of the first floor dedicated to AUT motorcycles, then I asked the ticket master and he said that that area was for AUT staff only.



    So now it is for students also. Sweet as. Now I know where to park my blade so no one will get an affection to feel her tits all the time

    Just a note to remind people to check the hours of operation of the Wilson carpark - it does close different times on different nights. I have heard sometimes it closes before the listed time and this is being investigated.

    Hi, a note to all that are using WF this week.

    There will be NO PARKING OUTSIDE WF this WEDNESDAY 15 OCTOBER because of a faculty event. Signs will go up, but any bikes there on Weds will be REMOVED.

    Wilson on St Paul is of course free for us now. Tell everyone about this.

    Soon also the new conditions for parking at WF will be announced, probably restricting parking to one row of bikes against the wall only.
