Getting around campus
Students at UVA have several transportation options available to them. The University Transit Service (UTS) and Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) form a network of bus routes that cover virtually all areas of Grounds and the City of Charlottesville. Students can ride any UTS or CAT bus for free with a valid UVA ID.
University policy prohibits first year students from having vehicles on-grounds during their first academic year.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I receive a refund for a permit I no longer need?
If you no longer need your permit or if you leave the University, you may be due a refund on the permit you hold. Any refund will be calculated based on the date that the permit is returned to the Parking and Transportation Office. If you pay for your permit by payroll deduction, to avoid any billing for the remainder of the permit year, you must return the permit.
Does Parking and Transportation waive the fine of your first ticket?
To review the citation regulations please visit the Parking and Transportation's website.
