FastPass is a reloadable card for hourly parking in Main Campus garages without pulling a ticket or waiting in line at paystations. Anyone—students, employees, and visitors—can use FastPass as a convenient parking payment option.

How does FastPass work?

FastPass is a convenient way to park in Main Campus garages without purchasing a permit, pulling a ticket when entering, or waiting in line at paystations or cashier windows. Swipe your FastPass in the card readers when entering and exiting a garage, even if the gates are in the open position. Swipe your card again when you leave and fees will subtract at the hourly parking rate.

While garage permit holders are guaranteed a parking space inside the garages, hourly parking (including FastPass) is granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Peak campus hours may affect garage space availability for hourly parkers.

Purchase a FastPass

Purchase a FastPass at the Ximenes Avenue Garage (XAG) and Bauerle Road Garage (BRG) cashier windows or at the Campus Services office at the Downtown Campus (FS 2.418). An initial balance of $10 is required.

Reload Funds
Add funds to your FastPass in denominations of $5 or more. The FastPass is ready for immediate use.
Check Balance
Check your FastPass balance through MyParking. Login to your account, select View Permits, and click on FastPass to view your balance.

FastPass to Permit

With FastPass, you can buy a UTSA garage parking permit at your pace.

  1. Purchase and use your FastPass.
  2. When the cost of your current surface permit added to the amount spent on FastPass parking equals the current cost of a garage parking permit, Campus Services will give you a garage parking permit.

Garage parking permit of choice is subject to availability and valid for the current academic year. Visit a garage cashier window for more information.
