Bruin ePermit System

OverviewBruin ePermit

UCLA Transportation is excited to introduce the Bruin ePermit system where your license plate is your permit.

The Bruin ePermit system works similar to a supermarket scanner with your license plate functioning as the barcode. When read, the numbers of your plate are automatically referenced against the parking database to verify a valid permit for the lot location.

Please check this page regularly for updates and more information regarding the transition to the Bruin ePermit system.

Moving to a virtual permit system offers numerous customer benefits such as:

  • Eliminating the need to display a hangtag or move hangtags from vehicle-to-vehicle.
  • The ability to purchase parking permits online.
  • Eliminating the need to come to the Transportation lobby to pick up parking permits.
  • Reducing paper, plastic, and resources used during permit production and distribution.




The Bruin ePermit system is an advanced parking technology that provides virtual permits through a vehicle’s license plate instead of paper permits or plastic hangtags. Bruin ePermits increase parking efficiency on campus, offer convenience for customers, and greatly reduce the amount of paper and plastic waste produced.

Individuals register their vehicle license plate information into the online parking system when purchasing their parking permits. The Bruin ePermit software then combines this information with the individual’s payment and generates a virtual permit linked to that vehicle’s license plate number.

Bruin ePermits allow us to eliminate the need for printed parking permits and thus make our parking management system more efficient.
