June 2, 2008 -- Michigan's 231 carpool parking lots are free to users, advises the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). The department maintains these lots located throughout the state, with approximately 8,550 parking spaces available for motorists.
MDOT warns drivers to be cautious if approached by anyone trying to charge them for use of the lots. Law enforcement officers are on alert for this illegal activity. MDOT's message: carpool lots are free; don't be fooled or scammed!
The carpool parking lot program is available to anyone traveling for business or pleasure. To find an available lot and for more information, go to the MDOT Web site at www.michigan.gov/parkandride
. An interactive carpool lot map is available, including locations and directions.
MDOT is conducting user surveys at lots located in St. Clair, Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties. Motorists are asked to complete the survey, because this input will help the department better understand what users need.
