Special Residential Permit

A special parking permit will be available for purchase by students who do not already have a parking permit, but who are planning to bring a vehicle to campus after Spring Break. The permit will cost $45 and will be split into two categories: Yellow residential access and Orange, Silver, and Tan residential access, depending on where the student lives on campus. Students with Yellow residential access will receive an RFID sticker that will only provide parking access to the Transportation Hub Deck. Students will have access to Crimson Ride services 24/7 to return to their residential area. Students with Orange, Silver, or Tan residential access may purchase a permit that will only provide access to the surface lots in their respective zones. The RFID stickers or permits are valid from Mar. 18 through May 6 and can be acquired at the Parking Services Office located inside the Transportation Hub Deck at 315 Hackberry between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Electronic Citations (E-Citations)

To reduce paper and eliminate waste, Transportation Services will begin testing a new e-citation system beginning Friday, July 21.  E-citations give parking enforcement officers the option of sending citations via email instead of printing a physical ticket. 

When a citation is issued, it will be emailed to the customer that is registered as the owner or responsible party of the vehicle. If the vehicle is not registered, the system will recognize the missing registration and prompt the printing of a physical ticket that will be placed on the vehicle. 

During the testing phase, individuals that receive a citation will have an easy-to-peel-off sticker placed on their windshield to inform them they have received a citation and need to check their email. 

The new e-citation system is expected to be fully implemented beginning this fall.  For questions or concerns contact Transportation Services at 205-348-5471 or uapark@ua.edu
