Considering how many weeks per year you are on campus (and excluding time off for vacations, winter break, etc.) may alter your calculations. For example, if you are on campus for classes 25 weeks per year and park in the Terrace Place daily parking garage five days per week, you would pay $437.50 per year in the daily parking program versus $540 per year with an annual parking permit.
Those already enrolled in the daily parking program or who wish to keep your annual permit do not need to reapply for the new semester. If you are interested in switching to daily parking for garage access starting Jan. 1, 2023, applications must be submitted by 8 a.m. on Dec. 20. Make sure to email email@example.com by Dec. 31 to cancel your annual parking permit.
If you choose to switch to daily parking after January, applications are continually accepted on a rolling basis. Apply by the 25th of each month to be enrolled by the first day of the following month.
Those who participate in the daily parking program are eligible to earn a $0.50 sustainable commute incentive each weekday they commute via walking, biking, WeGo bus or train (free with your physical Commodore Card), carpool or vanpool. Vehicle ownership is not required to participate in the daily parking program.
