Employee Transit/Walk/Bike/Vanpool Commuter Program

Approved applicants will receive the following incentive:

  • 24 free daily virtual parking permits for those days when you are unable to travel to work via transit, biking, walking or vanpooling.

Applicants must:

  • Reapply each year for commuter status.
  • Understand daily parking permits are valid in the Coliseum Deck or C permitted staff parking areas.
  • You are provided 24 free virtual parking permits per academic year. Paid daily parking options can be found here.
  • Understand that transit, bicycle, walk and vanpool commuters cannot have a current NC State University parking permit for any area, or must be willing to submit a permit return request for their current NC State University parking permit before their application will be processed.
  • Assigned work location must be in an NC State Transportation permitted area; i.e., not an off-site location which does not require a valid NC State parking permit.
  • Each applicant must have a registered vehicle in their name or in the name of a family member or spouse. This assists in reaching the goal of reducing single-occupancy vehicles on campus.
  • Daily permits are not to be sold, traded, gifted or otherwise offered to an unauthorized user.
