Double Your Options and Still Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Occasional/Evening Parking Permit
If you bike or take public transportation to work, but need to drive to campus a few times a month, the Occasional Parking Permit may be a good option for you. This annual permit allows an employee to park at MIT for a daily rate of $10. The fee is for a full business day, which means you can exit and re-enter in the same day at no extra charge.
These permits also allow unlimited after-hours, weekend and holiday parking in any parking facility on campus (excluding residential parking areas).
Economy Occasional/Evening parking is a discounted parking program offered to employees who elect to park in West Lot and Westgate Lot. To learn more about the Economy Parking options, visit the Economy Parking page.
Payroll deduction: MIT employees may elect to have the annual Occasional and Evening Parking permit fee of $100 and any daily charges* deducted from their payroll check. To apply for an Occasional or Evening Parking permit through payroll deduction, visit the How to Apply page.
Credit Card Billing: Affiliates, alumni, DAPER members (who cannot have the charges deducted from payroll) and participants of the bicycle commuter benefit should apply online. A monthly invoice will be emailed and can be paid online by credit card.
Prepaid: a check for $200 (the $100 permit fee plus a $100 refundable deposit that will be used towards daily charges*) can be sent to the parking office after completing an online application.
*The daily parking rate with an Occasional Parking Permit is $10 for each business day that a person parks on campus. A business day is Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM.
