Yes. An assigned parker may allow others to use their space at no charge or sublet to others to share the space. DAS parking rule requires those sharing the cost of a space to split that cost as evenly as possible among the users. When sharing a space, the assigned parker maintains rights to the space. Spaces may not be transferred from the assigned parker to a sharing partner. If the assigned parker uses an agency space for any reason, sharing partners may not use the assigned parker's assigned space during that time.
No. Do not park multiple vehicles from a certified carpool in any state parking facility without paying for the additional vehicle. Carpools are specifically set up as a ride-share, not a space-share arrangement. Even under the current emergency status in which carpooling has been difficult, only one vehicle from a carpool may use the assigned space or permit. If carpool participants drive to work separately, to avoid a citation, the additional carpool vehicle must purchase and display either a daily or half-day permit.
No. Do not use invalid or cancelled permits of any kind, especially ADA placards. Using an expired ADA placard or one that is not specifically assigned to you will lead to citations with much higher fines, as well as the possibility of more serious consequences.
No. Agencies may not pay for employee monthly parking costs. For daily parking costs, employees and agencies must follow the DAS working remotely and DAS statewide travel policies to determine if parking expenses are appropriate for travel reimbursement.
Yes, that is entirely your decision and up to you to decide your comfort level on publicly sharing your parking space information. Also, to seek space sharing partners, it is solely your decision on whether to communicate your information via bulletin boards, via emails to coworkers, or by other methods. DAS advises you avoid sharing your space number with anyone except your designated sharing partners or other coworkers you have authorized to park in your space.
No, managers may not assign or otherwise allow employees to use spaces of other employees who are working remotely. There is no requirement for employees to share their parking information with their manager.
No, agency managers should not be asking employees to share their parking information or space availability for this purpose. It is the employee’s responsibility to seek space sharing partners and their decision to share their parking information with others.
Possibly, but DAS receiving revenue on the space twice from agencies is not always the case. Agencies would only reimburse an employee that is designated as full-time remote work. For hybrid workers reporting to the central office to take out a state vehicle, the daily parking cost is a commuting cost and is not reimbursable.
This arrangement poses issues around equity for hybrid work employees and potential for some employees to get a financial benefit of free parking. DAS CHRO and DAS Parking Services are aligned in not allowing this option. Also, on a near daily basis, DAS must address situations where agency managers inappropriately “authorized” employee parking actions that are in violation of policy, rule, and, sometimes, law. Having the policy action at a high-level and enforced by DAS Parking Services will help inform management of the spaces in question.
