When a zone sells out, waitlists become available to join. If you see "Join Waiting List" when purchasing a permit, the zone is sold out.
Waitlists reset each year for Annual Commuter A, B or C permits and each Term for Campus Resident R permits. Waitlist requests do not guarantee a permit will be awarded for a permit location. If you were on a waitlist in the past but were not notified of an available permit, you may purchase a permit of your choice during general permit sales, subject to availability.
Adding yourself to a Waitlist
You can add yourself to a waitlist for a sold-out zone by visiting the permit sales website, and selecting the permit and zone of your choice. If the zone is sold out, you can join the waitlist. Alternatively, contact Transportation Services to request to be added.
Permits are released as they become available in each zone and are issued in the order that the waitlist requests are received. Permits become available as current permit holders return their permits or if utilization data shows that the zone can support the release of additional permits.
You will be notified via email if a permit in your zone of choice becomes available. If you are notified, you will have three (3) business days to purchase the permit online or in the office. If you do not purchase a permit or contact our office within three (3) business days to make other accommodations, you will be removed from the waitlist.
