Set It & Forget It!

If you are a benefits eligible employee, no need to renew your long-term parking permit annually anymore. Now you can extend your permit expiration to any date in the future. Simply, set it and forget it unless you need to:

  • Change your permit type
  • Update/add a vehicle
  • Cancel a permit

If you are a non-benefits eligible employee, have an active permit beyond Aug. 31, 2022, and pay on a recurring basis from a debit/credit card, no action is needed unless your banking information needs to be updated.

Need to ensure your long-term parking permit is active for fall or buy parking? Great news: with virtual permitting, it’s not necessary for benefits eligible employees to renew their permits annually. Why not set your expiration date far into the future so you don’t have to worry about your annual renewal? Simply set it and forget it!

 

  • Not sure about your permit status? Visit “How To Check the Status of Your Permit.”
  • If you are a benefits eligible employee with an active permit beyond Aug. 31, 2022, no action is needed unless you wish to:
    • Change your permit type. Tip: Cancel/return your existing ongoing permit at the end of any month and purchase your new one starting on the 1st of the following month so you’re not charged for two permits.
    • Update/add a vehicle. (Vehicles must be registered and linked to the permit to avoid citation.)
  • If you are a non-benefits eligible employee, have an active permit beyond Aug. 31, 2022, and pay on a recurring basis from a debit/credit card, no action is needed unless your banking information needs to be updated. 
  • Renewing your permit for the 2022-23 FY is still an option via Stanford Transportation’s online ordering system.
  • Department, vendor, and contractor parking permits for 2022-23 FY are also available.
