Permit Options

Virtual Permit (Pilot Program)​

Nine campus parking locations will be "permitless" as part of PTS's virtual permit pilot. 

Starting August 15, 2019, PTS will provide virtual permits in the following campus parking locations:

  • NEW: W02-Student Center Deck
  • NEW: E81-Tech Square Deck
  • NEW: W22-Dalney Street Deck (scheduled to open August 2019)
  • NEW: W23-North Campus Deck
  • NEW: E82-Centergy Deck
  • ER53- North Ave. Apartments North Deck
  • ER54- North Ave. Apartments South Deck
  • ER66- Family Housing Deck
  • WR30- Curran Deck

Virtual permits will replace physical Annual Individual and Semester permits for these 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. Be sure to update your license plate information as it will be used for gate access via license plate recognition readers.

Please note:

  • 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.
  • To return permits, email info.parking@parking.gatech.edu.
  • Carpool permits are not part of the virtual permit program. All carpool permit customers will receive a physical hangtag to display in the aforementioned parking locations.

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.
