On March 1, 2019, the Commuter Parking Permit at the north parking lot of the Schaumburg Commuter Station transitioned from a physical hang-tag permit to a digital license plate permit. This change allows the user to have better access to their permit and also reduce administrative time for village employees. The permit is instantly activated on the first day of the permit cycle or at the time of purchase (if purchased after the permit cycle has already begun). Once the user has created an account with Passport they will be able to purchase a monthly or quarterly permit, manage their permit, add up to 4 vehicles under one permit, and set up auto-renewal. Please read through the FAQs below for more detailed instructions.
