Bruin ePermit System

OverviewBruin ePermit

UCLA Transportation is excited to be introducing the Bruin ePermit system over the next two years. As part of this transition, UCLA Transportation is currently piloting this virtual system in several UCLA Parking Structures.

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.

Permit holders will still need to display their parking permit decal throughout the pilot process.
