Permit Options

Virtual Permit

All Annual Individual, SmartPark, Semester and Evening/Weekend Permits will be VIRTUAL in 2020-2021.

Customers will not receive physical permits to display in their cars. BuzzCards will be the primary method of entry in all gated locations. License plate numbers will serve as permit credentials and will be used for enforcement and gate entry in some parking locations. Customers should keep their BuzzCards handy and update their license plate information in their Driver’s Seat accounts.

Current virtual permit parking locations include the following:
• W02-Student Center Deck
• E81-Tech Square Deck
• W22-Dalney Street Deck
• W23-North Campus Deck
• E82-Centergy Deck
• ER53- North Ave. Apartments North Deck
• ER54- North Ave. Apartments South Deck
• ER66- Family Housing Deck
• WR30- Curran Deck
 
Please note:
• Customers will be required to park front-in only (no back-in or pull-through parking) as their license plate information will be used for parking enforcement. To update license plate information, visit The Driver’s Seat.
• Vehicles that are not parked front-in will be subject to citation.
• BuzzCards will be the primary method of entry in all gated locations
• Temporary permits are available for non-registered vehicles.
• Customers may register multiple vehicles; however, only one allowed on campus at a time.
• Customers who have temporary license plate numbers may purchase permits, however, their license plate info must be updated once permanent tag arrives in The Driver’s Seat.
• To return permits, email info.parking@parking.gatech.edu.
• Carpool, Motorcycle, Retirees, Alumni, all departmental permits, and E70-14th Street Deck are not part of the virtual permit program. Customers will receive a physical hangtag for these permits. 
 
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.
