Permit Rules and Regulations
Every employee, faculty, staff, and student vehicle parked on Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC) or Boston Medical Center (BMC) property must display a valid parking permit. A permit allows a vehicle to be parked only in an assigned parking facility. A permit does not guarantee space in parking facilities, but every effort is extended to accommodate permit holders.
Access and egress to all parking facilities are by card access only: authorized BMC and BUMC IDs.
All permit transactions (issuance, exchanges and returns) are conducted at the PTS office. Permits are issued for up to 12-months. A valid vehicle registration and a valid identification must be presented to validate eligibility for a parking permit. Renewal permits are distributed annually for all authorized parkers.
Permits must be clearly visible from outside the vehicle and should be affixed to the rear side window on the driver’s side.
Altering the information on a permit may result in immediate suspension of parking privileges and/or other disciplinary action, as appropriate, including possible legal prosecution.
Permit Refunds, Replacements, Cancellation, Fees
Refunds on prepaid permits will be issued and payroll deductions will be terminated when the PTS office receives the permit, accompanied by a formal cancellation request. The PTS office must be notified if your access card (for specific garages) cannot be returned or a $20 fee will be charged.
If notification of termination is not given, charges will continue to accrue regardless of the permit’s date of expiration. The effective termination date for payroll deductions is either the date on which the permit is received by the PTS office or the last day of employment, whichever is first.
If your vehicle is sold, or if the registration is changed in any way, you must return your old permit or provide OPTS with proof of sale, transfer or disposal of your vehicle in order to be issued a new permit.
Lost or stolen permits must be reported to the PTS office immediately.
Replacement permits (e.g., to replace lost or stolen permits) will be assessed a $20 fee.
