June Permit Renewal Notice
Permits Expiring in June valid until August 15, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the phased campus reactivation, Transportation Services did not automatically renew parking permits that expired at the end of June.
Parking restrictions are currently eased, and permits with a June expiration date will continue to be honored as valid until at August 15, 2020. Payroll installments for all permits ended June 30, 2020; there are no deductions for campus parking permits in July. There is no need to return or cancel the permit.
The deadline for permit returns has passed.
The original return deadline for permits was March 31. The date for student permit and bus pass returns was extended to April 15, and faculty and staff could return their permit by May 15 to stop payroll installments or to receive a pro-rated refund if they paid in full at the time of purchase. This information was originally posted as an announcement, and as an FAQ response on the University's COVID-19 FAQ page.
Payroll installments for the current fiscal year ended June 30, 2020; there will be no campus parking permit deductions in July.
For faculty and staff who did return their permit, Transportation Services will provide a grace period of one month to re-apply for their permit area once general parking rules are back in effect. Students will be notified by email when permit sales open for the new academic year.
More information about the renewal process will be available once we have determined the dates for reintroducing parking restrictions and resuming permit sales.
Parking Rules Eased
Permit restrictions eased until August 15, 2020.
To relieve some of the burden and stress on Cornell community members who must be on campus during this public health emergency, Cornell Transportation will not enforce regular parking permit restrictions, with the exception of a few areas, March 17 through August 15, 2020.
People may park in most permit-restricted or Parkmobile spaces during this period, with no permit or payment required. Cornell Transportation will continue to enforce fire lanes, loading zones, no parking areas, accessible spaces, and reserved spaces, including MT spaces, and the client spaces at the Veterinary College.
Cornell Transportation will continue to monitor the availability of parking and enforce as necessary. Regular enforcement will resume on Monday, August 17, 2020.
