Starting August 15, 2018, PTS will pilot virtual permits in the following campus parking locations:
ER53- North Ave. Apartments North Deck
ER54- North Ave. Apartments South Deck
ER66- Family Housing Deck
WR30- Curran Deck
SmartPark permits (used in Technology Square Parking Deck - E81, Visitor Parking Area 3 and North Deck - W23)
Virtual permits will replace physical Annual Individual and Semester permits in these for locations. Permitless customers 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.
Customers will be required to park head-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 head-in will be subject to citation.
BuzzCards will continue to be the method of entry in each of the permitless decks.
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.
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.
PTS plans to convert more parking locations to a virtual environment based on the success of the pilot program.
