Frequently asked questions

How can I get my parking permit or bus pass?

Bus pass

TJC students can ride a free bus with the Tyler Transit System as part of a partnership between TJC and the City of Tyler. To use the service, show your Student ID with the current semester validation sticker affixed when boarding the bus.

Routes and Schedules

If you do not have a vehicle on campus, your parking fee covers a Tyler Transit bus pass for the upcoming semester. You can update your ID at the TJC Police Department at 1019 S. Baxter Ave. or the Roger’s Student Center substation. 

Parking Permits

TJC Parking Permits are obtained through the TJC Parking Portal where you can:

  • Obtain new parking permit(s)
  • Set up permits for multiple vehicles
  • Pay for traffic violation citations

Once you have signed up, your parking permit will be mailed to you. When received, attach to the lower left corner of your rear windshield.

You will need your TJC-issued A# and password to sign in to the portal.

  • The purchase price through the portal is $0.00.
  • Students must be registered and paid for classes to obtain a parking permit.
  • Permits may take up to one week to be mailed to the address provided in the system.
  • If you have not received your permit in the mail before the first day of class, please print the temporary permit provided in your confirmation receipt and place it on your dash to avoid receiving a parking citation.


If you have questions or are having trouble signing up for your parking permit using the new online TJC Parking Portal, please get in touch with TJC Police at 903-510-2258.
