Requesting Daily Complimentary Permits

All Commuter Choice participants are eligible to receive two daily parking passes per month who do not already own a permit. The Daily Complimentary Permits (of which participants may request two per month) are only valid for the month indicated in the "Valid Month" box on the permit and the permits do not roll over.

To get the maximum benefit from the Daily Complimentary Permits, we advise that you request the permits early in any given month in which you will be using them. Any vehicle with a permit used in a month other than the one indicated in the "Valid Month" box will receive a citation. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

To request the two Daily Complimentary Permits, please email transpo@gmu.edu with the subject line "Requesting Daily Complimentary Permits." If you have any questions, please send us an email or call 703.993.2828.
