Off-Campus Students

Texas A&M has developed a Campus Master Plan that provides the framework for creating a more urban experience, prioritizing pedestrians, cycling and transit over personal-use vehicles. As a student living off campus, the best option is usually to park once and use these mobility options to get you where you need to be. Read more about each of these options below.

Alternative Transportation

Without question, the fastest way to get around campus is on a bicycle. Whether you own a bike or are interested in learning more about our bike share and bike lease programs, having access to a bike will save you time and give you the greatest amount of flexibility.

But our alternative transportation team has more to offer than just bikes. We're committed to keeping our campus green and giving you reliable, environmental-friendly mobility options. Check out our programs below.


We provide on- and off-campus bus service free to students, faculty and staff. Buses run different schedules for class days, evenings, weekends, special events and holidays. Plan your trips by checking real-time schedules and routes, available at or

Buses can fill up fast, especially at the start of the semester, so try to arrive to your bus stop early. Again, we encourage you to consider all options, keep a multi-modal mindset and have a Plan B!


To park on campus, you must either purchase a parking permit or pay for visitor parking. If you decide to drive on campus, we recommend parking once and using the other mobility options to avoid delays in getting to class.

Parking Permits

A parking permit can be requested at during the registration period from April 8 through July 8. After registration closes, any available remaining parking permits can be purchased online only beginning August 1.

I have a permit, now what?

Permits are valid in the location designated on your permit and in certain other places on campus during designated hours. Different rules apply for class days, weekends, special events and holidays. Check out the following links to learn more.

Available parking permit options for freshmen can be found on our freshmen selectable parking map.
