Texas A&M University’s Transportation Services formally opened Cain Parking Garage Monday, Oct. 10, offering more than 1,400 additional parking spaces near the Memorial Student Center and Kyle Field. 

Cain Garage, which includes more than 500,000 square feet of floor space, has five parking levels, including rooftop parking for use by visitors, permit holders and fans on game days.

“This state-of-the-art facility showcases some of the latest in parking technology that we expect will deliver the ultimate parking experience to our customers,” Associate Vice President Peter Lange, Transportation Services said. 

The exterior of the facility is designed to complete the surrounding campus infrastructure. They using a combination of materials; including brick, burnished block, aluminum panels and stainless steel mesh.

Upon entering the facility, electronic way-finding and level counting signage will guide customers to available parking. This technology operates in real-time and with 99 percent accuracy.

“Another benefit of Cain Garage is its close proximity to the core of campus, which helps to offset the growing parking demand that has resulted with the university’s increased enrollment.” Lange said. 

“An added bonus is that Cain Garage is the closest parking facility to Kyle Field, which offers premier parking for fans during football game days.” Lange added.
