Thank you for using public transportation. We appreciate your commitment to using green modes of transportation and to reducing the impact on Mason's parking infrastructure.
Daily Complimentary Permits
All Commuter Choice participants that do not own a parking permit already are eligible to receive two daily parking passes per month.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Requesting Daily Complimentary Permits."
In order to participate in the Commonwealth Commuter Choice Program, you must first submit the application to the program. You must average two days a week using alternative methods (other than driving alone) to be eligible for two complimentary daily general lot parking permits per month (if you do not own a permit).
If you have a parking permit, you will be issued two all-day garage validations per month instead. You also have the option of buying up to four (4) half-priced packs of 5 daily passes per semester for $20 or half-priced pack of deck validations for $35.
