VIRTUAL PERMITS

-PTS will pilot VIRTUAL PERMITS in the following parking locations:

  • ER53- North Ave. Apartments North Deck

  • ER54- North Ave. Apartments South Deck

  • ER66- Family Housing Deck

  • WR30- Curran Deck

Customers in these locations may purchase/renew their permits as usual in The Driver’s Seat. However, they will not receive a physical permit to display in their cars.

Benefits of the virtual permit program include reducing the number of physical permits mailed from the PTS office; eliminating parking customers’ need to display permits as they have in previous years; and reducing the number of customers purchasing permits in the PTS office.   

BuzzCards will continue to be the method of entry in each of the pilot decks.

NOTE: Customers will be required to park head-in only (no backing in) as their license plate information will be used for parking enforcement. Vehicles that are backed in are subject to citation.
