Motorist Assistance Program (MAP)

Free for all legally parked PTS customers. Coverage encompasses University meters, surface lots, ramps, garages, loading zones and vendor stalls. MAP can:

  • give jump-starts
  • add air to flat tires
  • provide referrals upon request

MAP is available on the Twin Cities campus from 7 am to 8 pm, Monday - Friday. Call 612-626-PARK (7275). Service is not available on official University holidays.

For official University of Minnesota vehicles, please call Fleet Services directly at 612-625-3033, 7:00 am – 4:30 pm.

Patrons who call for a private company (AAA, service station, etc.) to service their car while parked in a U of M facility-please be sure to inform the company that they must pay the posted parking fee to enter or exit the facility.

Want an easy way to remember MAP?

Stop by the PTS office for a free windshield sticker. University staff and faculty can request a sticker be delivered to your door through campus mail.
