Effective June 3, 2019, Parking Services will introduce a contactless parking digital system for purchasing parking permits on all Palomar College campuses.

Palomar College has partnered with the Phoenix Group to offer students enhanced customer service with a 24-hour digital platform to purchase permits online. The system allows for up to 5 vehicles to be “registered” to one student. The license plate number will act as the parking permit eliminating the need for a physical permit to be displayed in the vehicle. Students will no longer need to move a permit from one vehicle to another. However, students are only allowed to have one vehicle registered to them parked on campus at any time.

To accommodate daily and hourly parking, Park Mobile will offer a mobile app to complete transactions and add “time” to hourly permits.

ParkMobile is a new feature to Palomar College digital parking system. ParkMobile will accommodate daily and hourly parking on all of Palomar College campuses. This will be the only system for daily and hourly parking at the Rancho Bernardo and Fallbrook Centers. At San Marcos and Escondido, students may still purchase a daily permit from the permit machines with cash or credit card.Users will be purchasing daily and hourly parking through the ParkMobile app. Once the app is open, the user will need insert a Zone Number. The Zone Number will identify which campus the user will be parking. Zone Number signage will be on displayed throughout the lots of each campus. ParkMobile Zone Numbers have been generated for each of the Palomar College campuses.

ParkMobile Zone Numbers

7510 San Marcos Campus

$1.00 Per Hour

In May of 2018, the Governing Board approved a semester parking rate increase to cover the cost of the enhanced system. The new fees are $46 for fall and spring semester permit, $34 for summer semester permit and $26 with a CCPG Waiver.

Staff will transition to digital permits in July of 2019 with more information to follow.
