As of August 1, 2018, motorized moped type vehicles are no longer permitted to park at bicycle racks. Moped operators are required to purchase a permit and use designated moped parking areas on campus. The moped registration fee is $50 for a permit valid for the 2019-2020 academic year. Designated moped parking spaces are located throughout campus.
The All University Traffic and Transportation Committee recommended this change to the MSU Police Department to promote pedestrian safety and provide needed bike parking space at the bike racks.
As a reminder, all mopeds must also be registered with the Secretary of State Office to be eligible to purchase an MSU parking permit. Additionally, mopeds are not permitted to drive on sidewalks, designated bike paths, or lawns.
