Jefferson Begins Remote Parking With Shuttle Service for Employees
To help ease the parking shortage for Jeffersons employees and patients, and to provide employees with cost-effective, convenient parking, the Commuter Services Office (CSO) will provide remote parking with shuttle service for Jefferson-paid employees beginning October 1.
The remote lot is located at Pier 27 South, 325 North Columbus Boulevard (located on the east side of Columbus Boulevard, north of Dave and Busters), near the Ben Franklin Bridge and ramps accessing I-95 South, I-95 North and Spring Garden Street.
Shuttles will run Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., to three pick-up and drop-off points on campus: Gibbon Building (10th Street entrance), Jefferson Alumni Hall (1020 Locust Street entrance) and Wills Eye Hospital (9th Street entrance between Walnut and Locust Streets).
The shuttles will make continuous loops during peak hours from 6 to 9:30 a.m. and from 3 to 6 p.m.
You must sign up for the remote parking and shuttle service by monthly payroll deduction. With Jefferson subsidizing a significant part of this program, the cost to employees will be $75 per month (averaging about $3.50 per day). Sign up by the end of December, and youll receive your first month of remote parking at half price, $37.50.
For more information, please stop by the Commuter Services Office to pick up a brochure or call the CSO at 215-955-6417.

S.T.A.R. Tip - Teamwork
Listen when others speak. Even if you disagree with an idea, dont tune out or dismiss it too quickly. Sometimes the best ideas come from building on the ideas of others, no matter how far out the idea may seem at first.
Be an active participant. Good team members contribute ideas and share responsibility to get the job done.
Respect the differences of others so that the teams and hospitals goals are achieved.
Celebrate your teams efforts by remembering to thank one another. Dont take your co-workers for granted.
