Parking and T Passes
Parking is provided to CSAIL staff as available. Because parking space is limited, there may be a waiting list. Please see Tiffany Luongo email@example.com
in CSAIL HQ to apply for parking.
Staff and support staff are eligible to park in the Stata Garage, at 32 Vassar Street. The annual parking fee for regular paid employees is $1,192. The parking year runs September 1 through August 31. New parking stickers must be in place by September 15; after this date the MIT Police will ticket any car parked in a permit zone without a sticker.
Fees will be pro-rated for permits bought in the months after September. MIT accounts of any kind, including ILP and other discretionary fund accounts cannot be used to cover this charge for either employees or visitors. Employees may elect to have the fee taken out of their paychecks on a pre-tax monthly basis.
Lost or replacement passes
The replacement fee is $30 per sticker, or $10 for the sticker if you return the previous year's sticker.
The Occasional/Evening parking permit is intended to meet the needs of part-time employees, second- and third-shift employees, or employees who normally use other means of commuting. This permit allows a person to park in an MIT gated lot for a daily rate, up to twelve times a month. The one-time sticker fee is $67 and the daily rate fee is $5 up to 12 times per month for a business day, and not for each entry or exit during the day. The rate increases to $12 per day for each additional day of parking. A $100 deposit is also required when picking up the occasional parking permit at the parking office.
Economy Regular parking and Economy Occasional parking
Economy Regular parking and Economy Occasional parking are discounted parking programs offered to employees who elect to park in the West Lot and Westgate Lot. The Economy Regular parking fee is $710. The Economy Occasional parking fee is $67 for the one-time sticker, and a day rate of $2.50 up to 12 times per month for a business day, not for each entry or exit during the day. The rate increases to $6 per day for each additional day of parking. A $100 deposit is also required when picking up the Economy Occasional parking permit.
Free TechShuttle service
West Lot parkers can use the free TechShuttle service (http://web.mit.edu/facilities/transportation/parking/employee/economy.html
) which runs approximately every 10 minutes during peak hours to get to most parts of campus.
CSAIL does not have regular or visitor parking for MIT students.
Please refer to the MIT student parking page on the MIT Parking Office website
for more information about parking on-campus.
Visitor Parking is available for visitors to CSAIL who will be here for a day or two at a cost of $20 per day. A pass for each day of the visit can be obtained from the assistant of the PI that the person will be visiting. The visitor must display this pass in his/her automobile.
Those here for lengthy visits, such as Visiting Scientists and Scholars, may be eligible for Occasional commuter parking permits. Please contact Tiffany Luongo firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Transponders for Hands Free parking
MIT has installed transponders for "Hands Free" systems in the Stata Garage and the upper levels of the West Garage. This system employs technology similar to that being used for the Fast Lane program on the Massachusetts Turnpike and other major highways. A transponder attached to your windshield automatically opens the parking gates, eliminating the need to swipe your card.
"Hands Free" parking is a voluntary program provided at a cost of a one time $20 fee and a refundable $20 deposit on each transponder. You may apply online
for Transponders for "Hands Free" or download a printable PDF application for mail or fax.
