Customers may return parking permits or other transportation products for a refund of future days paid, based on when the Transportation Services office is able to process the request. Refunds are not available for same-day purchases, including those requested due to unexpected schedule changes. Customers are responsible for the payment of all permit or transportation product fees until they recieve confirmation from Transportation Services that their permit is canceled or until it expires.
Returns cannot be requested or processed using the customer portal. Customers must contact Transportation Services by email (email@example.com) or by phone (206-221-3701) for assistance with returns and refunds. Customers may also request refunds in person, but be aware that office hours remain limited.
If you have elected payroll deductions as your method of payment and wish to stop deductions, you must email Transportation Services to cancel the product and submit a written request via email of the cancellation. 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).
If you initially paid by payroll deduction, your refund will be processed through payroll. If you did not pay by payroll deduction, your refund method may be by check or card and will be confirmed with you before your refund is processed. Please note that check refund amounts of $100 or more will take 4-6 weeks to process.
