  1. How does parking work?

    I know employees need to purchase a parking pass. How much do they cost? I hear parking is a nightmare.

    I also heard about park and rides. At first, I thought I would be screwed. but the park and rides can accommodate the 7p-7a shift since the last bus leaves at 6:30. However, it doesn't look like they run on the weekends. Do the park and rides get full quickly?

    I work Days and have a blue pass, it's about 65$ a month, I picked blue when I first hired in on nights that way I wouldn't miss the money since I never had it if that makes sense, parking at night is a lot easier and with the cheap (around $20 a month) yellow pass you can park in many of the structures right by the hospital at night. Buses don't run on weekends and have odd schedules during the holidays. I you think you might want to move to days at some point it's best to just bite the bullet and get blue from the get go, also makes parking during CNO a bit easier too. And depending on the unit some units start you out on dayshift for orientation and then switch you to your shift mid way.

    That makes sense. Can you switch midway though? Like can I have a blue pass for six months and then switch to yellow?

    You can switch, there are also other areas near downtown that you can utilize with a blue pass as well
