Georgia Tech students with a qualifying disability which requires transportation as a reasonable accommodation or students who have a temporary disability due to an unexpected injury may utilize the alternate transportation service on an ongoing or limited time. Please keep in mind that this is subject to availability of the appropriate transportation.
All employees and students in need of parking accommodations must obtain a state issued disability permit. Disability Services does not handle parking requests. State issued permits are also valid in visitor lots. All employees and students are required to purchase a campus permit for the area in which they will be parking and pay the associated fees according to the particular lot fee schedule. The state issued disability permit and the campus permit must be displayed together at all times while parking on the Tech campus. Both of these permits must be renewed annually by following parking procedures.
