Pierce County Transit buses make regular stops at CPTC. To see specific routes, visit Pierce County Transit's trip planner.
Beginning spring quarter 2014 (March 31), CPTC students will no longer need a parking sticker for their car. Students must still park in spaces with white lines. Spaces with yellow lines are reserved for carpools, the disabled, authorized staff and visitors. The parking fee will be paid as part of the security fee.
Students who park on College property must register their vehicle and display a current decal, which is issued annually and is valid from September to September. Parking applications are available from the Security Office, Building 22, Room 127; Cashiering, Building 17, Room 102; and at Student Registration, Building 17, Lobby. Decals are available in Building 23, Room 211. Bring picture identification, student identification number and proof of class registration. Hours of operation are: Tuesday and Thursday, 2-4 p.m. Your first decal is included in your tuition expense, and there is a $7 charge for additional decals. If you are driving a temporary vehicle please come to the Security Office between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to receive a temporary parking slip.
The white striped areas are designated for student parking. Yellow striped areas are restricted to carpools, the disabled, authorized staff, and visitors. The campus speed limit is 10 miles per hour, unless otherwise posted. Vehicles improperly parked on campus are subject to a $15 fine for each offense and can be towed at the owner’s expense. Students are also subject to a $15 fine for each offense for non-registered vehicles, parking in unauthorized areas, blocking or obstructing traffic, and parking in fire lanes and tow-away zones. Parking in a designated handicapped space without a state-issued handicapped parking permit carries a campus fine of $75 or $280 if cited by the Lakewood Police Department.
Students who violate driving or parking rules may be required to leave their vehicles off campus. Clover Park Technical College is not responsible for damage or loss to vehicles parked on the campus.
Parking in the front of the building is plentiful. Staff, visitor and handicap spaces are bundled together at the far side of the lot, and all other spaces are available for student and special event parking.
The #402 bus travels hourly on Meridian (Highway 161). To get to the South Hill Campus, disembark the bus at 176th St. and Meridian and walk about a half mile up Sunrise Blvd to 110th Street. The South Hill Campus occupies the entire block at 110th and Sunrise.
