Off-Campus Parking and Travel

The business areas surrounding the Mt. San Antonio College campus are on private property and do not allow parking for any campus business. Vehicles found in violation are subject to citation and/or tow by the property owner. The College assumes no responsibility for any fines or consequences associated with this action.

The College encourages everyone to obey all traffic laws as they travel to and from campus. Grand Avenue and Temple Avenue are highly traveled roadways and caution is encouraged when arriving and departing the campus, whether a pedestrian or operating a motor vehicle.

Citation Appeals Process

The Parking Services Department receives its authority to enforce the Traffic & parking Regulations from the California Penal Code, the California Vehicle Code, & provisions established by the California State Legislature. Ignoring a citation will result in immediate legal action in the form of substantial additional penalties and a hold being placed on the vehicle registration with the Department of Motor Vehicles.

  1. Pursuant to California Vehicle Code Section 4021 S(a), you may contest a citation within 21 calendar days of issuance.
  2. Within 21 calendar days of mailing the appeal decision, post bail & request an Administrative Hearing at the Cashier's Office, Building 4. Proceed to Step 3 to contest further.

Only one parking citation will be dismissed for these reasons.
