Accommodating staff due to mandated office relocations (effective Spring 2016)
Current permit holders who have a mid-year office relocation mandated by the University will be inserted into the wait list of their choice according to their months of service with the university. This may cause other customers' positions on the wait lists to fluctuate during the permit year.
Lot 50X

Construction of a new parking garage is scheduled to close the western half of Lot 50 around December 2018. If you currently have a Lot 50X permit, you will be allowed to renew your permit, however it is important to note you may be required to move to West Campus Garage (WCG) when construction begins. You will not be required to pay the difference between the price for garage and surface lot parking.

Some customers who register to renew Lot 50X permits may be upgraded to a Lot 50 permit (without the X). Those upgraded to a Lot 50 permit will not be displaced during construction and can remain in Lot 50 for the entire permit year.

Motorcycle parking changes Additional motorcycle parking was added to the area between the Chemistry Building and Francis Hall, the southern curb in Lot 30d, Lot 65, Lot 67 and the easternmost row of Lot 50. As the Campus Plan unfolds, you will see more motorcycle parking removed from the center of campus and moved to the periphery of campus.
License Plate Number Required Texas A&M is implementing new technology that will require adding the license plate number of the vehicle being registered to park on campus. Please ensure you correctly enter the license plate number of the primary vehicle you will be using on campus.
Recent Changes in Tax Laws

(effective Fall 2018)

In a recent email, Joseph Duron, CPA, Executive Director of Budgets and Accounting at the Texas A&M University System sent an email to all system members which included the following statement:

"...based on the recent changes in the tax laws affecting our Unrelated Business Income activities (in particular our parking operations) we have made the decision that as a System, effective September 1, 2018, we will no longer be offering employees the benefit of paying their parking fees on a pre-tax basis..."

The change in the tax laws for Non Profits creates Unrelated Business Income Tax for the amount employees are allowed to take pretax. Employees can still pay for permits monthly through payroll deductions, but without any pretax benefit. For customers choosing to continue paying for their parking permits via payroll deduction, no action is needed.
