Alternative Transportation Incentive Program


The Alternative Transportation Incentive Program’s (ATIP) intention is to reduce the number of vehicles on the road and on campus while also reducing carbon emissions along with other toxic byproducts created by fuel dependent vehicles. The Department of Parking and Transportation acknowledges that there may be circumstances in which individuals who typically commute using alternate forms of transportation are required to drive a vehicle and park on-campus. Parking and Transportation shall provide limited free parking each semester/term to community members who utilize ATIP and therefore pledge not to commute on a regular basis as a driver of a single occupancy vehicle (SOV).


Students, Faculty, Staff and Affiliates at the Westchester Campus who qualify and register with ATIP shall be issued a coupon code valid for five complimentary days of parking during the Fall and Spring Semesters. During the Summer Sessions (I and II), three days of complimentary parking will be issued. Coupon codes may be redeemed at any Pay Station or at the Parking Office during business hours. Participants may not park in Lot I – Xavier.


In order to receive a complementary ATIP coupon code, the following criteria must be met:

  • Current LMU community member (Student, Faculty, Staff and Affiliate)
  • Have an active One Card
  • Be in good standing with the University
  • Have not purchased a parking permit as a SOV
  • Live off-campus
  • Agree to the Terms and Conditions set forth in the ATIP Consent Form

Enrollment Process

To apply, please complete the ATIP Consent Form. You may email or drop off the form at the Parking Office during business hours 8am to 5pm Monday thru Friday. If sending via email to, please use the subject line “ATIP Consent Form.”

Once the ATIP Consent Form has been processed, a confirmation email will be sent with the ATIP Coupon Code and instructions for use.

Participation in ATIP requires reenrollment each semester.

Code Details 

Codes issued through ATIP will not be available for purchase or extension. Number of available uses per code per each semester will be dependent on the date of induction. A sliding scale shall determine the number of uses each code contains. Each month past the start of the ATIP period shall count as a single day of parking removed from the code. The date of application (not the confirmation date) will determine the number of uses per code. The maximum number of days available per code is five and the minimum is one. Unused codes will expire at the end of the semester dates below and will not rollover into the following semester or term.

Semester Dates

  • Fall – August 15 through January 15
  • Spring – January 1 through May 31
  • Summer – May 1 through August 15


Participation in ATIP does not replace or excuse any driver of knowing and complying with the University’s Rules & Policies. All vehicle operators are expected to follow and adhere to al local, state, and federal regulations. ATIP participants who drive and park on campus shall be treated as any other member of the LMU community.

Misuse of the misappropriation of validation codes constitutes grounds for the immediate revocation of ATIP privileges, with the possible suspension/revocation of general parking privileges on LMU property. The Department of Parking and Transportation has the right to suspend or revoke an individual’s participation in ATIP for the violation or the suspected violation of any criteria listed in this document. The Director of Parking and Transportation or the Associate Vice President may amend of change this document without notice.
