Tempe campus

Frequent commuters to the Tempe 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 sustainable transportation through discounts and services, such as bikes, 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. Display your hangtag permit facing outward from your automobile’s rearview mirror. Automobiles with permits that are not visible may be cited. 

Parking permits for garages use a loop system. The permit allows for one entry and exit at a time. Sharing a permit to avoid hourly parking rates may result in a citation, facility fees or loss of parking privileges.

HOV permits

Share the ride to campus. Permit holders who rideshare to campus may exchange their annual parking permit for a High Occupancy Vehicle | HOV 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. 
  • Park in specially marked spaces typically located on the ground level of a parking garage or close to the parking facility’s entrance. 

HOV permits are available for:

HOV permits are not available to students living on campus. HOV carpool users are not allowed to have individual parking permits.
