Parking at MIT
As of September 15, 2016 most parking in gated lots on the MIT Cambridge campus will be pay-per-day and require an Occasional “Pay-per-day” Permit. So ditch the car when you can! Drive today, take the subway or bus tomorrow, and walk when the weather is nice. No annual commitment involved, and your total expense will be capped at the 2016/2017 rate of $1,760 (the equivalent of a one-year pass). Annual permits are still available for non-gated lots. This new parking program is part of Access MIT.
To apply for subsidy and reimbursement incentive programs, visit your Commuting Benefits page on Atlas.
If driving is your only commuting option, we’re here to help. On this site, you’ll find information about permits, parking locations, benefits, and regulations. We also provide a step-by-step outline of how to apply for a permit, where on your car to affix the sticker (it’s very important), and how to cancel your parking.
Please note: Commuter parking is regulated by the Clean Air Act of 1973, which restricts MIT to providing parking for no more than 36% of its commuting population. All people with MIT appointments are eligible, but not entitled, to receive a parking permit for an MIT parking facility, regardless of whether they work full-time or part-time.
