The new parking year is under way, and Transportation Services wants to highlight accessible parking and transportation options available to the UW campus community members and visitors with disabilities.
Applications for 2023-24 base lot, Flex, UW-Accessible, park and ride, and business alternate parking permits opened May 10. There are multiple opportunities to apply before (and after) the upcoming parking year starts. Bus passes and other parking options will become available August 1.
Want to park on campus this summer, or want to pick up an employee bus pass? Check out available options available for instant purchase in the eBusiness purchasing portal. Available products are offered at a prorated cost.
Applications will be accepted for 2023-24 department limited permits, service/vendor permits, and reserved parking stalls beginning May 10. The deadline to apply for early consideration is June 9. Applications will be accepted after June 9 and processed in later rounds of parking offers. Permit and reserved stall availability may become limited after the early consideration deadline.
The legal holiday of Thanksgiving will cause a reduction in services for Madison Metro Transit, including campus bus routes. Some parking restrictions will be waived to accommodate bus riders unable to easily travel to campus during the reduced service.
The reduced cost parking permit program for 2022-23 parking permits is expanding. The salary threshold to qualify for a 2022-23 reduced cost permit will increase and reduced cost permits will be available in more lots.
Parking applications are now open for the upcoming year (Sept. 1, 2022 – Aug. 31, 2023). Applications are processed several times in the summer and approximately every two weeks during the academic year.
2021-22 parking permit applications are closed for the remainder of this parking year, which ends Wednesday, August 31. Remaining permit options for this parking year are now available for instant purchase in the eBusiness portal.
Parking permit rates and policy changes for the 2022-23 parking year (Sept. 1, 2022 – Aug. 31, 2023) have been approved and released.
Transportation Services offices are closed Nov. 25 and Metro Transit buses will run reduced service Nov. 25-26. Certain parking rules will be waived Nov. 26, with most surface lots available without a permit.
