New Parking Fee at the Chapel Hill Transit Park and Ride Lots

On April 10, 2013, the Chapel Hill Town Council approved the implementation of a fee structure for park and ride lots managed and operated by Chapel Hill Transit (CHT).

The following fees will take effect on August 15, 2013:

  • Daily rate: $2
  • Monthly rate: $21
  • Annual rate: $250

The fees will be effective at the following park and ride lots: Eubanks, Southern Village and Jones Ferry. At this time, no fees are planned for the commercial lot at Lowe’s in Pittsboro, and CHT is still negotiating with Carrboro Plaza. Permits for park and ride lots managed by CHT will be available for purchase online and customers will also be able to purchase daily permits at each lot. Information on the permits will be available on CHT’s website at

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) will also be implementing fees for their park and ride permits, effective August 15, 2013. UNC park and ride permits will be honored in Town lots. Additional information on UNC park and ride permits is available at

CHT park and rides will remain first come, first serve to allow users to choose the most proximate and available spots (due to varied work and class schedules, spots are not consistently occupied). Permits will be valid for all CHT lots to maintain optimal capacity.
