Permit Types & Where to Park

Permit Types

  • All parking permits are hangtags with an encoded Radio Frequency ID (RFID) chip to open appropriate gates for your permit type.
  • Hangtags must be hung from the rear-view mirror or displayed on the windshield on the driver’s side by using a PaTS approved display pouch (available from the PaTS office at no charge).
  • Permits may be registered to more than one vehicle at no additional charge as long as any additional vehicles are registered to the permit holder, their spouse, or their parent/guardian.
  • Permit types have specific access:
