License Plate Recognition (LPR)

We are transitioning our parking system to license plate recognition (LPR) in the coming months. LPR will completely revolutionize parking at VCU by removing the need for physical parking permits--your license plate will grant you access to your dedicated parking facility. 

We will gradually activate the system, allowing subscribers to use either the LPR system or the current RFID hangtag system. Our ultimate objective is to fully transition to the LPR system by June 2024. Throughout this process, we are committed to keeping you informed every step of the way and providing timely updates on the activation of LPR in specific decks.
