Shuttle Permits and Parking

What can I do if I’ve lost my permit?

You are able to purchase a new permit in the Parking and DU Card Services Office. The University is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged permits. Replacement permits will incur a fee of $30.00.

I have to drive to campus and have purchased a shuttle permit, what are my options for parking?

You are permitted to park in the Forbes Avenue or Locust Garages and pay the daily parking rate.

How long does my permit last?

Shuttle permits are valid for one semester. You must purchase a new permit every semester.  The shuttle operates during the fall and spring semesters.  As long as you are a registered student, staff or faculty member you may purchase a permit, residency restrictions apply to commuter students.

How will I know I’m on the right bus?

I was late for my class, what can be done about that?

Unfortunately, arrival times are not guaranteed and are only an estimate. Delays can be caused by construction, weather or traffic. Please plan ahead and arrange to get to campus in time for class.
