Parking permits

tag Parking permits will be required for the Winter 2023 term.

Winter term permits are available for sale online.  Students and part-time faculty will need to go to MyPCC to buy their term permits and the permit is mailed to your home address on the next business day.  See more information about PCC parking permits for students, faculty and staff, and other parking permits and options.

Hourly and daily parking permits are available for the Winter term through the permit dispenser machines located on the campuses.

PCC shuttle service

PCC will be operating the free shuttle service during the Winter term.  Updated schedules for the Winter term will be posted soon and will be similar to the Fall term schedules that are available online.  We anticipate only a few small changes to the existing schedules.
