Retiree Parking

The UC Davis campus encourages retired staff and faculty to remain active within the campus community and interact with colleagues and students. The University is grateful for the volunteer services and contributions of UC Davis retirees and realizes the value of the retiree parking program in support of these continued efforts. The campus will continue to fund retiree parking through the fiscal year ending June 2019. In light of our current campus budget challenges, the Retiree Parking Program will continue to be evaluated in future years and any program changes or updates will be communicated to "RT" permit holders.

Former faculty and staff, identified by the campus Benefits Office as officially retired, as well as retirees from other UC campuses who join either the UC Davis Retirees' Association or UC Davis Emeriti Association, can obtain a complimentary Retiree (RT) Parking Permit. RT permits provide "A" permit parking privileges on the UC Davis campus and "B" permit parking at the UC Davis Health system. Retirees may visit Transportation Services to request an RT permit. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For those who are unable to travel to the Davis campus during business hours, permits may be requested via email or by fax at 530-752-6966. For all three options, the following forms of identification must be provided at the time of request:

  1. Driver's License or State issued ID; and,
  2. AggieCard (obtained from the AggieCard office at the Memorial Union), retirement confirmation letter (mailed from UCRS when retirement is confirmed) or direct deposit/SurePay pension statement (downloaded from "At Your Service" website.)

There are established policies and eligibility requirements to ensure the integrity of the retiree permit program and to minimize program costs. If retired faculty or staff members return to attend school or to work for the University with an employment appointment (regardless of percentage) and/or are being compensated for their services, they are no longer eligible for the permit. "RT" permits are not transferable and may be used only by the individual to whom the permit is issued. Permits and/or future parking privileges may be revoked as a result of inappropriate use. We appreciate your cooperation with these RT permit conditions. Should your permit be lost or stolen, please notify Transportation Services immediately. The cost of a replacement permit is $15.

If you have any questions or comments please contact Transportation Services.

NOTE: Retiree Permits are not valid in red zones, disabled spaces (unless your DMV issued placard is displayed), reserved or carpool spaces (until after the posted time), Diamond E/Vendor areas, "H", "D", or "TH" areas, special permit, loading/time zones beyond the posted time, or other restricted spaces. Regulations for these areas are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.
