EV Permits are for plug in vehicles and allow you to park in three locations: Posvar Garage (A), Soldiers and Sailors Garage (SO), and O’Hara Garage (OH). You will have a designated home garage, but are permitted to move to the other two garages.
Remember: When you park, it's important to display your permit so our parking enforcement staff knows you're allowed to park in your facility. Your permit is yours and yours alone—it is non-transferable.
Applying for an EV Permit
To apply for an EV Permit, email a written request to the Parking Office at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Your name
- Your work address
- Your campus phone number
- Your preferred lot choice: O'Hara Garage, Soldiers and Sailors Garage, or Posvar Garage (optional)
If a space is unavailable, you will be placed on the EV waitlist. You will be contacted when space in any EV location becomes available.
Remember: To be issued an EV Permit, you must have a plug-in electric vehicle and be able to provide a copy of your vehicle registration.
Paying for your Permit
Simply contact us to pay for your parking permit, don't worry about sending a check or getting your payment in on time. Faculty and staff use a hassle-free automatic payroll deduction, so that even if you forget, your account remains in good standing. Be sure to verify that your fees are properly deducted and contact us to report errors so we can quickly resolve them. If a billing error should occur, your monthly fee still applies.
Please note that Pitt parking permit rates will increase on July 1, 2020 – Learn more here. Permit rates are reviewed annually, subject to change.
|EV (Electric Vehicle) permits||$100/month|
Some parkers use their Pitt ID as an access card for their garages. If this is you, please remember to stop in the Parking Services Office anytime you get a new ID so we may update your record in the garage access system.
EV Charging Locations
The Parking Office leases 16 EV charging spaces on campus. Chargers are located in the following areas:
- Posvar Garage: 6 Level II Chargers
- Soldiers & Sailors Garage: 4 Level II Chargers
- O'Hara Garage: 6 Level II Chargers
- Meade Street Lot: 4 Level II Chargers
Level II Chargers can charge most vehicles within 4-5 hours. With your EV Permit, you can charge your vehicle as needed. When charging is not needed, a regular parking space should be used to increase charging opportunities for others on campus.
