Policy Statement

All motor vehicles parked by faculty, staff, students, visitors, contractors/vendors of the Georgia Institute of Technology on Institute controlled parking areas must display a valid parking permit or be parked in designated visitor/metered parking areas. Parking permits may be purchased at the Office of Parking and Transportation Services (PTS), located at 828 West Peachtree Street N.W. Complying with the Institute's parking rules and regulations will help ensure an effective parking control program for the benefit of the entire campus community. Everyone's cooperation is essential. Penalties and fines have been established for violation of the campus parking regulations.

Carpooling, and using alternative transportation to single-occupancy vehicles, such as MARTA, Georgia Regional Transportation Authority, Cobb County Transit, and Gwinnett County Transportation are encouraged. Payroll deduction is available for some of the transit alternatives. Check with the PTS office at 404/385-RIDE (7433) for more information.


A parking permit may be obtained by bringing a copy of the vehicle registration and BuzzCard (or other photo identification) to the Office of Parking and Transportation Services. Full-time (benefits-eligible) faculty and staff may also choose payroll deduction as a payment option. Temporary employees are not eligible for this option, and must make payment in full at the time of purchase via cash, check, or charge.

Visitors may purchase temporary parking permits from the Office of Parking and Transportation Services, or park in designated visitor parking areas or at meters and pay the posted rate. Vehicle registration and a driver’s license are required to purchase visitor temporary permits.

Please visit Parking and Transportation Services' web page at: http://www.pts.gatech.edu to obtain a campus parking map, a complete set of parking rules and regulations, lot designations, parking rates, visitor and special event parking, and alternative transportation options.

Parking and Transportation Services’ telephone number is 404-385-PARK (7275).
