Polytechnic campus

Frequent commuters to the Polytechnic campus may choose among three permit options; automobile, motorcycle and sustainable. Purchase a permit via the transportation portal. Daily and hourly options are available across campus. 

ASU encourages the use of sustainable transportation through discounts and services, such as bike, campus shuttles and public transit on light rail and Valley Metro Buses.

Automobile permits

Sun Devils can purchase an annual permit. This permit is most cost-effective for students, faculty and staff who plan to be on campus three or more days each week. Parking permits are virtual; there is no physical permit to display. Your vehicle's license plate must match the plate on file in your ASU Transportation Account to avoid citations. 

Multiple vehicles can be assigned to the virtual permit, but only one vehicle can park on campus at a time.

Sustainable permits

HOV permits

Share the ride to campus. Permit holders who rideshare to campus may exchange their annual parking permit for a High Occupancy Vehicle permit in the same location. A customer must purchase a permit for an HOV-eligible facility before applying for an HOV permit. Perks of an HOV permit include the following:

Divide the cost of a regular permit — group members handle the cost division.
Each individual within the HOV group, other than the primary permit holder, is given three all-day validation tickets to use in visitor parking garages when ridesharing is not feasible. HOV group participants may purchase additional validation tickets in person at any campus PTS customer service office. 

Please email Parking and Transit Services for information about HOV permit options.
