Carpool Parking Permit Request

Carpool permits are still physical permits.  You will need to pick up your physical Carpool Permit before you may park in a carpool parking space.

Please read the following information closely before submitting your request

  • Carpooling Groups of two or more people may request a Carpool Permit.   There is no cost for a carpool permit.
  • Each vehicle in the Carpool must be registered with Parking Services and display both a Carpool Permit and a valid Texas State University Permit decal.
  • Each member of a carpool must be registered on a carpool application form, found below. 
  • Carpool spaces may be used by vehicles displaying a valid Carpool Permit from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Maximum of two carpool permits will be issued per Carpool Group.   The permit may be laminated to help preserve it from wear and tear.  Only one of the two carpool permits can be used at a time. If two vehicles from the same carpool are on campus displaying both permits, the vehicles may be ticketed and the carpool passes confiscated.  
  • Changes in carpool memberships should be reported to Parking Services immediately.

I understand that I will need to wait until I pick up a physical carpool permit to park in a carpool parking space. *
