About PTS

Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is responsible for the management of over 17,000 parking spaces on campus, including 12 parking garages and more than 50 surface parking lots.

We are self-funded, and serve Financial and Administrative Services at The University of Texas at Austin.

Our dedicated team of approx. 100 full-time and 140 part-time employees strives to satisfy the daily requirements of 70,000 staff, faculty, students and visitors. With a staggering ratio of spaces to people, we use spaces and lots for multiple purposes to accommodate the maximum number of people.

Our parking operations include the distribution and regulation of daily, permitted, and event parking, as well as the maintenance of parking lots and garages. We also provide assistance to those parked on or traveling through campus. This assistance includes jump-starts and opening vehicles for those locked out.
