Information for New Employees

Welcome to UCSB!

Here are two programs you should know about. The programs are offered to staff and faculty employed on campus.

Payroll Deduction (PRD)

Staff and faculty on campus are eligible to purchase annual and monthly renewable parking ePermits, and thereby realize a substantial savings over daily and monthly permits. Monthly Renewable ePermits are sold exclusively via pre-tax payroll deduction. If you qualify for Payroll Deduction, a monthly permit fee is deducted directly from your paycheck.

Apply online by logging into your eParking account at: http://tps.ucsb.edu/ePermits

For more information contact a staff person at Parking Services regarding parking ePermits or parking on campus.

Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)

TAP membership offers benefits to those who primarily commute between their residence and UC Santa Barbara's main campus by foot, skateboard, human-powered kick scooter, bicycle, bus, carpool, vanpool or train. By reducing traffic congestion, traffic emissions and the demand for parking on campus, we conserve energy and contribute to a better UCSB. Motorcycle and remote work may reduce greenhouse gas emissions traffic and parking demand these modes are explicitely not included in the Transporation Alternatives Program's complimentary parking benefit.
