Commuter, Transit and Parking

In This Section

Parking E-Permit

You can register your vehicle under the new Parking E-Permit System. Parking permissions are now being tracked based on license plates. There is no longer a need to go and get—and keep track of—hangtags. If your vehicle is already registered and you have a non-expired parking permit, there is nothing for you to do

You can purchase parking permission online (credit or debit) or in person (cash, check, RU Express) at the Department of Transportation Services
