COVID-19 parking and transit updates
Beginning fall semester 2021, Transportation Services transitions to virtual permit parking.
Cameras and license plate recognition software will be used to verify parking permissions. Your license plate serves as your permit, rather than a hangtag.
Customers with virtual permits must register their license plate, pay for parking permissions, and display their license plate toward the driving aisle.
Annual parking rates are prorated.
We project permit rate increases are necessary to support the construction of additional parking garages, road and sidewalk maintenance, and surface lot construction and maintenance.
The increases will be reviewed each year before implementation. The following rate schedule has been approved by the university administration and is subject to change.
All 2021–2022 permits expire
August 5, 2022.
Customers that need to park for a portion of the year may return the permit any time before
July 17, 2022,
for a prorated refund.

(NOTE: Customers who return their permit lose their priority as a previous customer.

Three surveys have been conducted showing where Texas A&M ranks among other universities across several categories:
There are limits on the university that restrict the use of state or tuition revenues to build, maintain, or operate parking operations on campus.
By university policy, Transportation Services must operate as an auxiliary enterprise and all bond indebtedness, maintenance, administration, utilities, and insurance must be paid for with user fees.
The primary source of revenue is parking permit sales.
