Park & Ride
Free Parking For Fall & Spring Semesters
For those with cars but without parking permits, NC State provides Park & Ride commuter lots, all served by Wolfline buses.
Check Wolfline timetables for specific bus departure times.
A FREE permit is now required to use the Park & Ride lots. This will allow us to contact you about any closures or other events that may have an impact on the lot. Click here for information on how to purchase a FREE park & ride permit.
