Parking at Bucks is More Convenient with Online Permit Application

Students can now print a temporary permit at home, then exchange it for a sticker on campus.

To make commuting to college more convenient, Bucks County Community College has implemented an online system for students to apply for a free parking permit.

By visiting www.bucks.edu/parking, students can complete the permit application online, and then print out a temporary permit that is valid for two weeks. During that two-week period students can exchange the temporary permit for their permit sticker at the Security Office on the Newtown campus, or at the Security desks at the Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie, or the Lower Bucks Campus in Bristol.

Dennis McCauley, the college’s director of security and safety, said the new cloud-based system, which replaces paper applications, is truly a win for the entire college community.

 “Getting a parking permit is now easier and more convenient than ever before for students, employees and visitors,” said McCauley. “The entire security and safety team is proud that the college is able to provide this enhanced level of service, and we’re grateful to President Stephanie Shanblatt and the Board of Trustees for having the vision to support this project and move it forward.”

Parking remains free at all three campuses, but all vehicles must be registered with a current parking permit. Students who use multiple vehicles can get as many permits as they require. What’s more, help is available by e-mail at parking@bucks.edu.
