Texas Medical Center parking

This is for all you folks who commute to the TMC for work or visiting. What are the rules for motorcycle parking?

I have tried reading up on their website and I just get more confused.

If I want to take my motorcycle to work every now and then, and I park at various garages, not just one, what are my options? Do I need to have one of those motorcycle parking stickers? It seems like that is a $65/month contract though.

Then I read on the site about using standard visitor tokens/tickets like I do already in my car. If I go there on my bike, can I just take a token and park in the motorcycle parking spots, or will I need to have a proper permit?

They have designated motorcycle parking spots scattered throughout TMC. I had to request for a motorcycle parking sticker from my employer, and picked it up at the old Nabisco building (John P. McGovern).

If you park in the garage you should be fine using the system. If you park in the spot off of fannin.. youll need a sticker... and better insurance

I got full coverage with theft protection. I don't work for any organization in the med center so I can't request a permit that way. I just want to make sure I can park at the commons or by BCM without any hassle since those are the two main locations where I park.

Thanks!

Rule 1. Carry the best full coverage/theft insurance you can afford.

2. Carry the heaviest chain and/or lock you can manage.



I don't know what it's like now, but my bike got stolen out of my apartment parking garage off of MacGregor 2-3 years ago, and around that time bikes were getting stolen from the med center left and right.
