Park and Ride
Park-and-Ride lots provide easy access to buses! Local Park-and-Ride lots are served by Chapel Hill Transit and require a parking permit. Regional Park-and-Ride lots do not require a permit and are served by regional transit systems including GoTriangle and PART. All buses provide direct service to UNC-Chapel Hill main campus.
Local Park-and-Rides are served by fare-free Chapel Hill Transit buses. Use the Google map to find Park-and-Ride locations and links to bus routes. A parking permit is required:
- Annual/academic year permit
- Register for CAP to obtain a virtual permit.
- University permit prices are based on employee/student status.
- Daily/weekly permit
- Use ParkMobile for a virtual daily permit.
- Use Online Services to print a daily/weekly permit.

Park-and-Ride permits for UNC lots are virtual. University permits must be printed when parking in Town of Chapel Hill lots (Eubanks Road, Jones Ferry, and Southern Village lots).
- Print permit at home/office through Online Services.
- Request permit for pickup from Transportation and Parking.
The University permits above are valid in all lots; Town permits are only valid in Town lots. Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. University Park-and-Ride lots may only be used for commuting to campus and are not intended for vehicle storage or to access nearby buildings.
Regional Park-and-Rides are served by GoTriangle and PART Express. These lots are located in nearby cities and are free to park. University employees and students may register for CAP to obtain a free bus pass!
