Occasional Parking Program

Effective January 1, 2017, new Occasional Parking Program options and guidelines will be available to faculty and staff who participate in Penn’s pre-tax transit commuter program. Occasional Parking is a convenient option for program participants who use public transit, vanpool, carpool or biking, to commute to Penn but sometimes have a need to drive and park on campus.

On an annual basis, these individuals may purchase 10 single-use passes at a cost of $60, which reflects a discount of over 50% off the standard daily parking rate. Passes will be valid for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase. The passes will be valid at the following locations: Penn Park Lot, Law Lot, Ludlow 34 Lot, and Walnut 40 Garage. Individuals wishing to park in the Walnut 40 Garage must specify that they wish to use this parking facility at the time of purchase as the garage requires a pass that is different from that of the lots. Alternatively, Occasional Parkers may exchange valid lot passes should they ever need to park in the garage.

  • Occasional Parking is available at Penn Park Lot, Law Lot, Ludlow 34 Lot, and Walnut 40 Garage
  • Passes will be available for purchase for a total of $60, by payroll deduction only
  • Participants cannot purchase additional passes within the one-year time frame
  • Participants must have a valid Penn ID Card, proof of participation in transit, vanpool or carpool programs and not be a current Penn Parking permit holder
  • Bikers would be required to register their bike with the Division of Public Safety property registration in order to qualify
