Student permits are available online at myCommute by logging in with your UCInetID. All available zones will appear and may be purchased on a first-come-first-serve basis. You may alter your zone based on availability. In order to renew your current zone, purchase your new permit while your current permit is still valid.

Student permits may be purchased using any major credit card Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
