Texas A&M Transportation Services earned status as an Accredited Parking Organization (APO) with Distinction, becoming one of the first in the nation to do so. The APO is a designation for parking organizations that recognizes best practices in responsible parking management and operations, customer service, professional development, safety and security.
“We are so pleased to be designated an Accredited Parking Organization with Distinction by IPI. This designation is a direct reflection of the Transportation Services Department and all that it is becoming, which is a premier transportation services provider for the Texas A&M community and in the nation,” said Associate Vice President Peter Lange of Transportation Services. “The men and woman of this department are committed day in and day out to providing the best service to our customers and I am confident they will continue to lead this organization to future successes,” he said.
