Transportation and Parking Services announces new, convenient parking permit renewal process for faculty and staff

Beginning this summer, Transportation and Parking Services (TPS) is making it easier for Ohio University faculty and staff to renew their on-campus parking permits. 

Through the use of a new system called Permit Direct, faculty and staff will be able to renew their parking permits online and opt to have them mailed to their home address, eliminating the need to visit the TPS office in person to pick up a new permit. 

“Our intent is to make renewing parking permits much easier for faculty and staff,” said Marty Paulins, director, Transportation and Parking Services. “Because parking permits expire over the summer, sometimes it’s difficult or inconvenient for faculty and staff to make it to our office to pick up their new pass. Using Permit Direct, the new process eliminates the need to visit our office at all.” 

Faculty and staff parking permits are currently issued every two years and expire in June, at the end of the fiscal year. Employees whose permits expire this June will be notified of their status via email, which will include instructions for renewing their permit online. 

TPS also places reminder slips on the windshields of cars parked in OHIO lots with permits that are close to expiring. 

While the permit fees will not change, beginning this June, faculty and staff parking permits will be issued on an annual basis instead of the current two-year permits. Those with permits that expire in June 2017 will be notified in the coming months with instructions for renewing their permits, while faculty and staff with permits expiring in June 2018 will be notified next summer regarding their renewal process and should continue using their permits until that time. 

Permit renewals will be completed via the Parking website, www.ohio.edu/parking. Upon availability, a faculty/staff permit renewal link will be provided from this main page.
