Notice to parking and Cliff permit holders

In an effort to limit fee increases for University faculty and staff, Emory will not increase its parking fees in February 2009 as previously planned. The annual parking fee, which typically increases each year to reflect inflationary costs, will remain fixed at $630 for a general permit and $1,500 for a reserved permit through Aug. 31, 2009. The carpool and vanpool parking fee structures will also remain unchanged through that date.

Cliff permits for the various commute options (carpool, vanpool bike, walk, public transit and Cliff transit) will be extended through Aug. 31, 2009. The number of daily uses will be pro-rated to 14 daily uses for the period of Jan. 31, 2009, to Aug. 31, 2009. 2009/2010 parking registration information will be distributed in June 2009. Additional daily uses can be purchased through the Parking Office at $75 for 20 daily uses.

Additionally, the registration for employee parking will shift from Jan. 31 to Aug. 31 in order to align with the academic calendar and fiscal year. Even though the current physical permit indicates a Jan. 31, 2009, expiration date, parking permit holders paying for their permit through payroll deduction will be able to continue to display their current hangtag without penalty until the August 2009 renewal. Current payroll deductions will continue through Aug. 31 at the same monthly amount. 2009/2010 parking registration information will be distributed in June 2009.

If you do not wish to continue parking on campus beyond Jan. 31, 2009, please return your permit to Parking Services in order to stop payroll deduction. For questions about the change in the renewal period, please call 404-727-PARK or e-mail parking@emory.edu.
