A new social media campaign will give the community a chance to get to know the people behind the Department of Parking and Transportation at Virginia Tech.

The Department of Parking and Transportation, part of the Division of Administrative Services, manages more than 16,400 parking spaces, a motorist assistance program, a fleet of approximately 300 vehicles, and a robust and award-winning alternative transportation program that includes daily shuttles from the Blacksburg campus to the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute in Roanoke.

In addition to 31,000 students and 13,000 employees, an estimated 60,000 alumni, parents, and community members visit the campus each year.

Find out about the work all these departments are doing — beyond issuing citations — by hearing about it from the employees themselves.

The campaign, called People of Parking and Transportation, launched today on the Virginia Tech Employee Facebook page and will run through the spring semester.

Today’s post features Hokie Bike Hub manager Alex Pham. Next week, the community will get to meet Mike Hill, a parking enforcement officer and the man who keeps the parking garage and lot gates in good working order.

Read the first installment of the new campaign on the Parking and Transportation website.
