Getting Around the Cornell Campus
We all make choices according to what is important to us. Whatever your motivation, the Cornell University campus is an ideal place to try out a car-free lifestyle, and Transportation Services is committed to offering a range of options to make your commute easy, economical, efficient, healthy, and sustainable.

2022 Parking Changes
Transportation Services Announces Changes Beginning in July
Transportation Services is revising its parking and commuting offerings to realign parking demand, introduce new technology, and provide equitable, easy-to-use, self-service solutions designed to meet the needs of all community members. Most annual permit holders will experience no change in their parking privileges or parking locations, and there are no permit rate increases during this renewal cycle.
June expiring permit holders will have the opportunity to renew or request a different option when the annual renewal period opens on June 6. Commuters should examine their transportation options, especially if they require only limited, occasional access to campus.
Daily Decision Parking
Low-cost Parking Options Using ParkMobile
The Daily Decision program gives commuters access to low-cost, short-term options to meet their occasional parking needs. Using the ParkMobile app, this program provides community members greater flexibility than a traditional annual or semester permit, coupled with the convenience of contactless self-service.
Visit the Daily Decision page to learn more about parking options, prices, and locations, and visit ParkMobile.io to download the app, create an account, and park.
Permit and Payment Requirements Enforced
Faculty and staff returning to in-person work are encouraged to visit myparking.cornell.edu to check their permit and vehicle information before parking, as restrictions and Night/Weekend Parking Rules are enforced throughout campus. Community members should also be prepared for upcoming event impacts on traffic and parking. Fine-due citations are issued in response to permit and payment requirement violations.
