Discounted parking permits are available for hybrid, electric, compressed natural gas (cng), liquefied petroleum gas (lpg), and bi-fuel vehicles.
UMASS is now offering discounted parking permits for "clean" vehicles (California Air Resources Board). This discount is intended to encourage the use of “clean” vehicles and reward those commuters already doing their part to reduce the environmental impact of the automobile. This discount is a two year discount of 20% off your annual parking permit. The Clean Vehicle Permit discount cannot be combined with other discounted programs including Occasional Parker Permits and Carpool permits.
The UMASS Commuter Options Program is designed to meet Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection guidelines under the Air Quality Program.
Visit the CARB website for a list of eligible vehicles.
