Pay-per-use parking (PPUP)
Rate varies based on use: $6/day if used 4 days or less per pay period. $7.50/day after the fourth use in a per pay period.
Not sure if you will be parking twice a week or twice a month? PPUP may be a good option for you. As a member, you can come and go in your assigned PPUP lot by using an AVI card or swiping your Husky card to raise the gate at the entrance. You are then billed at the end of each pay period, with the daily rate varying depending on how many days you parked. The less you park, the less you pay.
(UW parking is free on Saturdays after 12 p.m. and all day Sunday, so if you use PPUP to park during these times, it will not count toward the number of days in the pay period.)
Where to park: You will be assigned to one of the following parking areas: Portage Bay Garage, E12, N29, W8 and W44. In February 2019, W45 will also become a PPUP lot. PPUP members may also swipe their Husky card to park in E1 at the applicable PPUP rate, or pay the $6 daily rate using a credit card. Please note that motorcycles are not allowed in any gated lot or garage.
If you need to go to a different location for business reasons, you may stop at any
campus gatehouse to request an out-of-area permit. Availability of these permits is limited, and depends on the parking area’s capacity at that point in time. PPUP permits are not eligible for after hours unrestricted parking.
How payment works: You may choose between payroll deduction or Husky Debit to pay. You must have a balance greater than $0 at sign up if you choose the Husky Debit option. If a deduction or debit is missed — for any reason — you will be temporarily denied access to the garage.
Missed deductions or debits are commonly caused by a missed paycheck, a paper paycheck, or insufficient funds on your paycheck or in your Husky Debit Account. Transportation Services does not have access to your payroll details; you must contact your payroll coordinator for more information.
Payment of outstanding fees will be required before access can be restored. You may pay either by coming in person to Transportation Services or by adding funds to your Husky Card Account and emailing us to authorize a Husky Card debit. If you would like us to process the payment immediately, please call us after you send the email authorizing the Husky Card debit.

SOV permits must be purchased either quarterly or annually from Transportation Services. Annual passes may use payroll deduction, while quarterly permits must be paid for at the time of purchase. This permit includes a free U-PASS, which must be requested from Transportation Services.
SOV permits are valid in their assigned lot all day, every day. You may also park in
E1 or E18 anytime without additional charge. If parking in E1, you will need to use your Husky card to gain entrance. In addition, you may park in any unrestricted parking area after 4 p.m. without going to the gatehouse first.
If you have temporarily forgotten your permit, or are in a different vehicle than usual, you may stop at a gatehouse, show your Husky card or employee ID, and be given an
alternate vehicle permit. If you need to go to a different location for business reasons, you may stop by any campus gatehouse to pick up an out-of-area permit. Availability of these permits is limited, and depends on the parking area’s capacity at that point in time.
Parking in E18 only.
$7.50 daily, $2.50 daily for Saturdays
Value and short-term SOV do not include unrestricted after-hours parking, alternate vehicle permits or out-of-area permits. They also do not include a free U-PASS, though holders of these permits can
purchase a U-PASS separately.

UW employees whose work frequently takes them to different locations may purchase this premium addition to their existing parking permit.

U designator parking is not allowed in the following areas:
Gated lots and garages restricted by card swipe access.
Self-service parking lots where payment is by machine.
C14, C17, N3, N22 Disabled/wheelchair spaces or lots. Temporary disabled parking may be requested at a gatehouse.
Any spaces marked for university vehicles only, or reserved or restricted in any way.
Parking lots not controlled by Transportation Services, such as the Triangle and Surgery Pavilion garages at UWMC or the Laurel and Blakely Village lots.
How to cancel or make changes
Employees may return parking permits or commuter tickets to Transportation Services at any time for a refund of future days paid.
If you elected payroll deductions as your payment type and wish to stop deductions, you must return the permit to Transportation Services and sign a stop-deduction form. The registered permit holder remains responsible for the payment of the permit fee until the permit is physically returned to Transportation Services or until it expires. If you received a complimentary U-PASS with your permit, it will be canceled at the same time you cancel your parking permit. (You may still
purchase a U-PASS separately).
Your refund will be processed in the manner the initial payment was received. If you paid by credit card, you must bring the same card to receive your refund. If you paid by check or in cash, please note that refund amounts in excess of $100 will take 4-6 weeks to process. Husky Card account purchases will be refunded within 24 hours onto your Husky Card.
