University faculty and staff have the option to pay their parking fees through automatic payroll deduction. With this option, you will be automatically enrolled in the Penn Commuter Choice program, which allows you to deduct parking fees on a pre-tax basis.

If you are currently a permit holder and have any changes to your status–including a new car, license plate, address, telephone number, or new position–it is important to contact the Parking Office with this information. Please e-mail the office at parking@pobox.upenn.edu  or call (215) 898-8667.
