Time to renew parking permits and Metro bus passes

To: UC Santa Cruz employees and graduate students

From: Larry Pageler, Transportation and Parking Services Director

Annual parking permits and faculty/staff Metro bus passes expire on June 30, 2017. Those who need to renew their parking permit or bus pass for 2017-18 can apply online now (http://taps.ucsc.edu/news-events/news/apply-for-2017-18.html), or in person at the TAPS Sales Office. If you apply online by June 16th, and do not receive your permit by July 1, please come to the TAPS Sales Office in person to follow up.

If you have already applied for your 2017-18 parking permit, there is no need to reapply.

As a reminder, most parking fees will increase on July 1st – the second of three annual increases approved last year.

Have you considered joining a vanpool? TAPS is actively expanding its commuter vanpool program, and is offering a "lunch and learn" program on June 20th for those interested in learning more. Information and registration is available online at the TAPS website.

Staff and faculty with multi-year parking permits do not need to reapply in order to continue using their permit unless they want to select a different type of permit or want to purchase a 2017-18 Metro bus pass. If you are unsure if you have a multi-year permit, you can compare it to the online permit samples at taps.ucsc.edu/parking/parking-permits/multi-year-permit-sample.html.
