    • On-campus > 16 days/month (discounted, so it makes sense!)
    • Or if you don't want to remember to use the app :)
  • **Permit price is a pre-tax deduction

(2) Flexible Parking via the ParkMobile App

  • Pay per day ($5-$6/day)
  • 30 minutes free parking for drop off (use app!)
  • Register with e-mail address (do NOT use an alias, it identifies your permit options by your AD account)

    • Graduate Students, TAs (including LLP) & Staff (B permit): 47300

Instructions to purchase 10 day pre-tax permits to use with the ParkMobile App:

To purchase your 10-day virtual permit:

  1. From the My Accounts tab on the Transportation Services website, select Parking Account.
  2. Click the "Get Permits" button and skip past the address confirmation − your permit will be delivered electronically at the end of your transaction.
  3. Scroll down to the 10-Day Permits section and select your permit.
  4. Select any vehicle on your account. Your permit will be valid with all vehicles tied to your ParkMobile account.
  5. Select your payment method and complete your transaction. Your parking zone and promotion code will appear on the receipt that display's at the end of your transaction. A link to your receipt will also be sent via email. **CLICK AND VIEW THE RECEIPT PDF FOR THE PROMOTION CODE**

To add your promotion code to ParkMobile:

  1. In the settings menu of the ParkMobile app, select Promotion Codes.
  2. Click the + (plus sign) to add a promotion code.
  3. Enter your promotion code at the prompt.
  4. Your promotion code will automatically zero out the parking fee on your next ten transactions for the indicated zone (permit type). The number of redemptions counts up from 0 to 10 in the app. Once you reach ten, it's time for a new code. You can load new codes ahead of time so you never run out of prepaid, pretax parking.
