Renewing Your Employee Permit

Most employee permits expire Aug. 15, 2020.

  • If your permit expires Aug. 15, 2020, and you payroll deduct the parking fee, the cost will change automatically to the new rate in your September pay. You will not receive a new permit, and no further action on your part is required.
  • If your permit expires Aug. 15, 2019, and the fee is partially or fully paid by your department, you will receive information from Parking and Transportation Services about the renewal process. This includes permits that have the letters AMR, CPL, FD, RS, RSD and UA in the permit number.
  • If your permit expires Aug. 15, 2019, and you payroll deduct the fee, it will be automatically renewed and a new permit will be mailed to you. Please confirm the address where your permit will be delivered by visiting Manage My Parking Account. The new rate will begin in your September pay.

Automatic Renewal/Payroll Deduction: Verify Mailing Address

Most employees have their parking fee payroll deducted. This includes AMS (Ambulatory Shared), and AMR (Ambulatory Reserved) permits. If you fall into this group, we'll automatically renew your permit and mail it to the address we have on record. The new permit rate will be reflected in your September pay.

About Payroll Deduction

  • Federal law allows parking costs to be deducted from the salary of eligible employees before taxes are applied.
  • By paying for a permit through payroll deduction, the amount of salary subject to Federal and State withholding tax is reduced by the cost of the permit.
