Park-N-Ride Permit NOTICE!

If you are logging into the online system and get a notice that “No Permits are Currently Available” then your only option is to purchase a Park-N-Ride which must be done in our office at this time.
Commuter Lots on the Parker App!
The Department of Parking and Transportation is using the ParkerTM mobile phone app by Streetline to help identify potential parking areas for commuter lots on campus. DPT has identified 13 parking lots most frequented by commuters and is checking the availability of spaces every 15-30 minutes and updating their status through the phone app. ParkerTM is available for iPhone and Android mobile phones. For more information visit http://www.streetline.com/find-parking/parker-mobile/ .
Update - 9:00am August 25th - as of this update, West Residential and Commuter permit types are currently the only permit types that are sold out.
Students, Faculty and Staff may now purchase their 2014-2015 parking permits online using the “MY PARKING ACCOUNT” link to the right. The link will take you to a site that will require you to log in using your Ole Miss WebID and Password. In order to purchase a permit you will need your vehicle’s Make, Model, Color and License Plate Info. Other non-affiliated visitors to campus should stop by DPT's office in Lester Hall to obtain a permit. Students, Faculty and Staff that experience problems with the system may come by DPT's office and utilize the onsite kiosks to order their permit. Remember, all vehicles on the university campus must have a parking permit!

Full Parking Zone Enforcement Restarts Monday August 18th
Parking and Transportation officers will begin enforcing parking zone regulations for the normal academic year starting Monday August 18th. Students will be required to park in the zone designated by their parking permit. Park-N-Ride service will resume and all Park-N-Ride permit holders should start using either the South Lot or the JAC for daily parking. Those students or staff who have not received their permits by mail should make sure to clearly display the temporary permit available through their My Parking Account.
Park-N-Ride Resumes August 18th 7:00AM
Park-N-Ride service returns on Monday August the 18th. The service this year will run from 7:00AM to 7:00PM Monday thru Friday. The Gold Line running to the South Lot will now serve both ends of the parking lot. The Brown Line serving the Jackson Avenue Center will now serve two stops at the JAC along with running a new route that services the north side of campus at a new stop located on Cross Street next to Barnard and Somerville Halls.
O.U.T. Route Changes Fall 2014
Final construction plans for the new round-about on Old Taylor Road across Highway 6 resulted in a change to the configuration of the southern entrance to the South Lot parking lot. Due to this change the Green Line buses can no longer turn in and service the stop located at the far east end of the parking lot. Gold Line Park-N-Ride service will be extended to that section of the parking lot but will not have direct access to the shelters there. Additionally, the Blue Line will no longer serve the Jackson Avenue Center in order to help reduce the frequent schedule delays. Blue Line riders needing to go to the JAC should transfer to the Brown Line near its Cross Street bus stop.
