Thank you- large Applicant Day parking




Thank you to everyone who car shared, used alternative transport, or worked from home on Wednesday’s Applicant Day.

We really appreciate everyone’s efforts to car share, use alternative transport and work from home. We would encourage everyone to consider these for the following large Applicant Days as your efforts really helped with the traffic management.
