Student Carpooling: $110
In an effort to reduce the number of cars on campus, we offer Car Pool Permits. As an incentive to join a car pool, we provide preferential parking to each car pool group. Students will be able to share the cost of the permit and the expense of driving to campus. Students enrolled in a Car Pool are not eligible for any other permit.
On days when multiple vehicles must be driven to campus, one would park in a carpool and the additional drivers would park at Paulson Stadium and use the transit system to access the center of campus.
Car pools must have two or more members, each contributing at least one vehicle of their own. Groups qualifying for car pool status will be able to purchase one parking permit to share and will be allowed to park in the elected Car Pool Parking area on campus. Car pool spaces are available in Lots 21, 32, and 42. Car Pools will be assigned to only one Car Pool area. Permit sales for these spaces will be limited to assure availability. All members of the Car Pool should enroll online for the opportunity to purchase a permit.

Employees will be able to share the cost of the permit and the expense of driving to campus. Employees enrolled in a Car Pool are not eligible for a permanent faculty/staff permit.
Car pool members will be given some scratch off permits to be used sparingly in cases of emergency. The scratch off permits will allow users to park in faculty/staff parking on those occasions when they have to drive to campus.

Effective Fall 2015, motorcycle permits are required for all motor-driven cycles including motorcycles, scooters, minibikes motorbikes and mopeds being 2 or 3 wheeled with any engine size (except as described below). Equipment classified as a moped (<50cc) under Georgia law will be subject to the same permitting requirements on the GSU campus. Motorcycles are permitted to park in any lot within a properly-signed Motorcycle Parking area. At the owner’s option, motorcycle permit holders may also utilize end-of-row areas denoted by yellow hatches whereas they do not interfere with traffic flow, crowding vehicle parking stalls, ADA access to sidewalks and/or not signed as a No Parking area.
For 3 wheeled motorcycles, the total width of the axle cannot exceed 24″ from the outside tire walls. 3 Wheeled motorcycles exceeding the axle width cannot be accommodated by campus motorcycle permit areas and must register their equipment with a regular vehicle permit for use in full-size vehicle spaces. Examples of exceeding width equipment includes Can-Am Spyder and Harley Davidson trikes.
