Guidelines for Obtaining an Employee Parking Permit

The parking application process begins with your department's Parking Coordinator. He/she sets up and approves an application with permit type and parking area for each department. The Parking Coordinator then notifies employees—in person or by email—that the applications are ready to be filled out and submitted.

Once your parking coordinator has notified you that your application is ready to be filled out, follow these steps to apply:

1. Log on to https://commuting.mit.edu.

2. Click on the “faculty, staff and affiliate commuting” link.

3. Complete the commuter survey and confirm or edit vehicle information.

4. Choose payment method (you can choose “payroll deduction” or “pay by cash or check”).

5. Review the information you have entered.

6. Submit the application.

7. If you selected “payroll deduction,” you have completed the application process. If you selected “pay by cash or check,” you will be prompted to print a copy of the completed application and send it to the Parking and Transportation Office with payment.

8. The Parking and Transportation Office will issue the permit through your Parking Coordinator. Place the sticker in the correct location inside the car.

After you submit the application, it goes into the Parking and Transportation Office queue. Neither you nor the Parking Coordinator can make changes to a submitted application. Email the Parking and Transportation Office at mitparking@mit.edu if you need to make a change.

Outstanding violations

Please note that if you have outstanding violations, you will be reminded at the final online display. The application remains in the Parking and Transportation Office queue, but no permit will be issued until the violations are paid. This matter is between you and the Parking and Transportation Office, not with your department.

Out of state vehicles

If you are a full- or part-time employee whose vehicles are registered out-of-state, after 30 days in the aggregate, check your legal status to assure compliance with the state and local regulations before contacting your Parking Coordinator.

Sticker locations

  • Non-tinted windows
    • Upper back corner of the driver’s side window
    • Upper front corner of the driver’s side passenger window
  • Tinted windows
    • Lower windshield on the driver’s side

Note: any sticker not properly displayed will be considered invalid.

Voided stickers

Remove them on the expiration date, or when a car is sold or otherwise disposed of.

Cancellation Policy

You have the right to cancel your parking at any time and for any reason. Once you decide to cancel your parking, you must return your parking sticker to the Parking and Transportation Office. Upon receipt of your sticker, the office will stop payroll deductions.

If parking was prepaid by check, any amount due will be refunded when the Parking and Transportation Office receives the parking sticker.

Note: parking fees are prorated on a calendar month basis only. For example, if you cancel your parking on April 3rd, you will be charged for the entire month of April.

In order to cancel your parking, you must fill out a cancellation form. Download a cancellation form here.(PDF)
