Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Preferred Parking

Currently, the average American who drives 15,000 miles per year emits over 17,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2), the major contributor to climate change. Carpooling and/or driving a fuel efficient vehicle can more than double fuel efficiency of the average car and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions like carbon dioxide. Skyline College and the San Mateo Community College District encourage faculty, staff and students to take steps to mitigate climate change by utilizing this program, which allows fuel-efficient vehicles to park in special designated spaces.

  • In order to park in these spaces, your vehicle must be on the List of Qualifying Vehicles  
  • If you drive a secondary vehicle that is not on the list, you may not use your supplementary permit with it and park in the fuel-efficient space that day
  • Please note that parking in the fuel-efficient spaces is based on a first-come, first-serve basis and there is no guarantee of a preferred space
  • We encourage everyone who drives a qualifying fuel-efficient vehicle to participate in this program and help support Skyline College's sustainability programs

Public Safety Department Parking Enforcement Note:

All vehicles require a staff/faculty/student or daily parking permit to park on campus in any of our fuel-efficient parking stalls. If your vehicle does not have a valid parking permit or is not on the Qualifying Vehicles List  , and you park your vehicle in a parking stall only for fuel-efficient vehicles, your vehicle will be subject to citation.
