Parking and Transportation


  • Citation/Boot Fees Increasing 9/1/23

    In response to a concerning increase in unauthorized parking across campus, Cornell is increasing violation fines for the first time since 2014. The new fine structure will take effect September 1, 2023, and apply to all vehicles violating posted parking guidelines.

  • Permit Availability

    Parking permits are issued to eligible faculty, employees, and students on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. Some permit areas may have additional work-in-zone or residency requirements. If a permit area is not available due to capacity or eligibility restrictions, please contact us for alternative parking options.

  • Vehicle Registration 

    It's required!

    Community members who bring personal cars, motorcycles, or motorscooters to the campus must register their license plate with Transportation Services, whether they buy a parking permit or use short-term options. Vehicle information must be kept current. Register a license plate and update vehicle information.

Transportation Services manages the commuting, parking, and inter-campus travel demands of Cornell University. Services include Campus-to-Campus motorcoach travel; fleet car rentals and leasing for business-related needs; department-owned vehicle repair and detailing; and transit pass, parking, and compliance program administration.
