What to do About Lost/Stolen Permits (for Departments, Vendors & Contractors)
Lost and stolen permits
A Stanford parking permit is worth hundreds of dollars a year and is costly to replace, so you will want to safeguard it as carefully as you would any other valuable. Always keep your car locked and windows rolled up.
What to do if permit loss or theft occurs
- Come to our office at 340 Bonair Siding and fill out a Lost, Stolen, or Replacement Report. If your permit was stolen, we recommend that you file a police report for your stolen permit with Stanford’s Department of Public Safety or in the relevant jurisdiction.
- We will issue a one-month courtesy permit to allow time for the permit to be recovered.
- If the permit is not recovered, your department or company will be responsible for the following:
- The full value of the original permit
- Plus, a replacement fee of $35 or 15% of the residual value of the lost or stolen permit, whichever is greater.
- Note: The fee will be waived if you provide a copy of the police report for a stolen permit.
For your use only
The parking permit remains the property of Stanford University. Selling or transferring the permit to someone else is a violation of the university’s policy that could result in disciplinary action.
Anyone found to be in violation of the Commute Club and/or parking permit policies set forth by Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS) is subject to revocation of transportation incentives and/or parking privileges. Instances of egregious misconduct may result in further administrative, disciplinary, and/or legal action, up to and including termination of employment or expulsion.
