Parking Perks Debit Program

The Parking Perks Program is replacing the existing Share Pass Program. The Parking Perks is a low-cost parking alternative for those who need occasional access to one of the university garages.

*** At this time, The Parking Perks Program is only available at converted garages. Please visit the Garage Equipment Conversion web page for more information. ***

This program offers the opportunity for substantial discounts from the regular daily rate and offers a great benefit for many university employees.

Parking Perks are great for alternative transportation users who may on occasion need to bring a vehicle to campus. The program is also perfect for “A” permit holders on days when you might leave campus for an appointment and then need affordable, convenient, alternative parking upon your return. Anyone with a need to move across campus during the day may find that the Parking Perks offers a convenient low-cost option for parking.

Eligibility

Anyone who is eligible to purchase an A permit or certain other approved UT affiliates can purchase the Parking Perks. Those with a UTEID can go online to purchase and recharge. UT affiliates that do not have a UTEID will need to visit a staffed garage office.

Purchase and Recharge

Purchases can be made online via the Parking Perks tab on your Parking Profile or in person at a staffed garage office. The initial purchase is $20 (there are no service fees- this is $20 worth of use in the garages). After the initial purchase, the Parking Perks may be recharged in any increment of whole dollars with a minimum of $10. Recharge online. When you recharge the monies will be applied to your account instantly.

Your receipt will contain a link to obtain a QR code to use at the garages. You can go to the Parking Perks tab to download the QR at any time.  The QR code has no expiration date.

The funds placed on the Parking Perks Program are non-refundable.

Do not recharge your Parking Perks card while in an entrance or exit lane so you do not create a traffic jam.

Out of sync Parking Perks credentials may be subject to a $15 re-synchronization fee.

Using Your Parking Perks

Parking Perks holders will receive a QR code on your receipt that will be scanned at the access columns located at the entrances and exits of each garage. If you are or were a Share Pass Program participant, we can program your Share Pass card as a secondary credential. You may only park one vehicle in a garage at a time using either the QR code or previous Share Pass card.

Balances and last use will be available on the Parking Perks tab in your Parking Profile.

You will not pull a ticket, nor will you need to go to the cashier before exiting when you utilize the Parking Perks.

Parking is on a space-available basis in each participating garage. If the CARD USE ONLY signs are illuminated or the lot is otherwise noted as full your Parking Perks will not work in that location. The Parking Perks will eventually be active in all garages, with the exception of Health Center garage and East Campus garage, so if you have a situation where parking is unavailable, you can simply try another location. Parking is limited, and is not guaranteed in any specific garage, and your vehicle must be removed from the garages by midnight. If you leave your vehicle parked after midnight, you will be subject to additional fees. Parking Perks parking does not entitle one to overnight parking in any garage. We also reserve the right to limit the use of the Parking Perks for some events.

Replacement

The funds placed on the Parking Perks Program are non-refundable, and Parking and Transportation Services will only recharge a replacement Parking Perks account for any unused amount at the time the original account is reported lost, damaged or stolen. A $10 replacement fee will be charged for any access card that is lost or determined damaged by user negligence. There is no fee to reprint or reclaim a QR code from the Parking Perks tab on your Parking Profile.

If you have additional questions about the Parking Perks, please email garages@utexas.edu.
