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, PART and Chatham Transit. All buses provide direct service to UNC 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
- Daily/weekly permit
- Print permit at home/office through Online Services.
- Request permit for pickup from Transportation and Parking.
The UNC 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. UNC 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, PART Express, and Chatham Transit. These lots are located in nearby cities and are free to park. UNC employees and students may register for CAP to obtain a free bus pass!
