Permit Requirements

Every vehicle, including those with specialized license plates, not otherwise exempt, which occupies a non-metered parking space designed for an automobile must display a valid permit. Commercially licensed vehicles are not required to display parking permits when engaged in the act of loading and unloading within a designated loading zone but cannot park in a loading zone for more than 15minutes.

Parking permits are the property of the University, may not be resold. Violations of these regulations will result in possible legal and/or disciplinary action and restitution as applicable. Please park in marked stalls between the lines.

Motorcycle Permits

Two wheel vehicles including mopeds or any motorized bicycles requiring a license by the State of California Department of Motor Vehicles are charged $47.00 per quarter for parking permits and required to park in a designated motorcycle space. Permit is to be displayed on the rear fender or on the front fork. (Please note that parking rates are subject to change at any time with or without notice).

What will the money be used for?

The money collected from parking permit sales is used strictly for parking-related expenses including maintenance and repair, lighting, signage, and administrative costs. These funds also partially fund the Bronco Express Shuttle system (along with money collected from parking citations). By law parking permit funds cannot be transferred to the University for funding of programs unrelated to parking.

Education Code §89701 states:

“All revenues received by the trustees from parking facilities, to the extent not pledged in connection with bonds or notes issued pursuant to the State University Revenue Bond Act of 1947, are hereby appropriated, without regard to fiscal years, to the trustees for the acquisition, construction, operation, and maintenance of motor vehicle parking facilities on real property acquired hereunder or on real property otherwise under the jurisdiction of the trustees, and for the study, development, enhancement, operation, and maintenance of alternate methods of transportation for officers, students, and employees of the California State University.”
