Important Information About Annual 3-Day and Online Daily Parking Permits

If you choose a 3-Day annual permit in FY22, you’ll have the flexibility to park any three days of the week you choose. If your current parking location does not offer 3-Day permits, we will suggest the closest available location.

Online daily parking permits, which can be purchased up to 14 days in advance, are subject to facility availability. Some locations could sell out of permits on any given day. If this happens, the system will automatically prompt you to the closest location with availability.

Improving the User Experience

Transportation Services has introduced a new pre-tax debit card for staff who wish to alternate between parking or transit through Edenred, our current T-Pass provider. This allows staff to purchase both daily transit (not subsidized) and daily parking on a pre-tax basis.

Beginning July 1, 2021, we will also introduce our new Zip-By App which uses Bluetooth technology on your phone to purchase daily parking at the 52 Oxford St and Soldiers Field Park Garages. More information will be posted soon on Harvard’s Parking website.

Temporary Commuter Parking Rates

Current temporary commuter parking rates will remain in effect until August 31, 2021. For more information visit Harvard’s Parking website.
