Our Transportation and Parking Services staff is working closely with Auxiliary Services and the University to stay abreast of and be prepared for the evolving situation related to the outbreak of COVID-19. Prevention is a key strategy with any virus, such as influenza or this coronavirus, so it is important to both protect yourself and take measures against spread to others.  

Students who need healthcare assistance may call the University Health Center at (706) 542-1162 or visit uhs.uga.edu.

Transportation & Parking Refunds

The University will begin issuing refunds the week of March 30th and the process will most likely continue through April 10. View the full Student Refund Plan here

Parking Permit Refunds

Students with permits will receive refunds based on the days remaining on the student’s permit from March 16 forward.  The following is provided as an example to demonstrate how parking permits will be refunded.  The refund value will depend on your particular parking permit, so this is only an example. 

Lot E06 Permit - expires 5/10/2020 $48.00

Calculation: $1.50 x 32 weekdays (Prorated daily value excluding weekends = $1.50/day).

Please note, the prorated value of your permit will depend on the original costs of your permit and the expiration date of your permit.  

Transportation Fee Refunds

Since the Spring Semester was approximately halfway through as of March 16 (54%, to be exact), 46% of the transportation fee will be refunded.  For those students who previously paid the Spring transportation fee in full they will receive a refund of $55.66 ($121 X 0.46).

UGA Bus Service

For the safety of our riders and staff, UGA buses will run a single modified route, stopping at areas on campus that provide essential services. With reduced ridership on campus, the route will be serviced by one bus, Monday - Friday from 7:45 am – 6:00 pm.

For your safety, Transportation and Parking Service is taking the following preventative measures: 

  • Reducing total number of buses in service 
  • Disinfecting buses nightly and throughout the day 
  • Providing hand sanitizer on each bus 
  • Wiping down bus seats and rails with disinfecting wipes 
Live track the buses on the UGA app or routes.uga.edu

UGA Parking Permit Holders

While in-person instruction is temporarily suspended at UGA, Transportation and Parking Services will continue to follow our Spring Break schedule. Our focus will be on monitoring ADA spaces as well as fire and life safety issues to provide a safe environment for our campus and our students, faculty and staff. Our parking team will monitor lots to ensure permit holders have adequate space in their designated lots, while providing flexible parking across campus for those individuals who are required to be on campus. During this interim period, if space is available, existing permit holders can park in lots and decks outside of their assigned lots without penalty.
