Stanford has not cared enough to work to really solve the parking problem in College Terrace but they sure are quick to protect their own space. I know Stanford has done some to help College Terrace with parking problems by giving money but if they really wanted to help, why not consider other solutions as well?
Some solutions could be:
Stop running the Marguerite bus down Stanford Avenue every 10 minutes. if this bus is supposed to serve Stanford, run the bus on Olmstead Road instead. Running the bus on Stanford Avenue only encourages Stanford cars to park in College Terrace.
Move the barrier on Escondido Road towards Stanford Avenue so that the Marguerite can serve Escondido Village/Rains (ie, Stanford housing) without having to drive on Stanford Avenue. This would have the added benefit of moving the Bing Nursery School pickup and drop-off traffic away from the Escondido School traffic which would be safer for both parties.
Allow students to purchase more than one parking permit if they have more than one car or need to park in more than one place, ie. they need an "A" or "C" sticker to park at work but a residence sticker to park where they live.
