The Mid-South Parking Association was initially formed as a non-profit organization in February 1999. The association consists of colleges, universities, cities, and airports in the Mid-South region. The first annual conference was held that fall in Nashville, Tennessee. 

In 2006, the organization reorganized as the Mid-South Transportation & Parking Association, in an effort to address more transit-related issues. The spring 2013 conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana drew over 140 attendees, and was a great success! 

The MSTPA’s mission is to provide professional growth, development, and interaction among persons involved in the operation of transportation and parking programs within the mid-south region. 

This association of transportation and parking professionals is organized to identify issues, share information, identify and evaluate solutions to improve parking programs and stay updated of legislative changes that impact transportation and parking operations.
