Introducing Daily Rates for Parking

Daily Rate Overview

Our campus parking system is in need of an upgrade. Commute patterns are changing and Transportation Services (TS) is adapting operations in a way that can better serve campus and Aggies with flexible work and class schedules. Introducing a daily parking option allows for the campus community to pay for parking as they need. 

You pay for the days you park, not for the days you don’t.

Offering monthly permits doesn't make sense as it used to. While Aggies continue to do their part to fully resume campus operations, we anticipate the number of employees and students visiting campus to remain low. Daily parking rates offer daily choices to staff and student drivers who are adapting to virtual work/learning as part of regular flexible schedules. For staff and those regularly driving to campus, daily parking rates are particularly important as a large portion of our workforce will continue working remotely for the foreseeable future. Similarly, daily rates will allow students to easily pay for the days they park on campus, rather than pay for an entire month. Plus, you can pay for parking from your phone with ParkMobile!
