LEV Parking Spot Sign

Employee preferred parking for low-emission and fuel-efficient vehicles

Your car may already qualify. The program is not limited to just hybrid or electric vehicles, many different types of vehicles dating back to the 2000 model year are considered low-emission. 

How to know if your car qualifies?
On the website below, use the search tab titled "Look Up Greenest Vehicles.” Check off “SmartWay” and "SmartWay Elite" before proceeding to see if your vehicle meets the requirements. Only cars that meet  these standards can receive a permit.

How to get a permit if you qualify:
Complete your application at the Parking and Transportation Services office located at G-01 University Union after you have determined your car meets the standards. Applicants also will need to know the engine size of their vehicle (4cyl., 6cyl., or 8cyl) and type of transmission (automatic/manual).

The program is only open to faculty and staff who are current permit holders. The cost of the LEV permit will be the same as a normal employee parking permit. The normal $6 fee to exchange a parking permit will apply to initially enroll in the LEV program. You may also download and fill out the application to be brought into the Parking and Transportation Services office with your vehicle registration. All documents must be brought in, emailed materials will not be accepted. Click Here to Download the Word Document

Participants in the LEV program are entitled to 5 one day courtesy permits each semester if another vehicle is driven to campus.
