Cornell expands parking and transit options offered to all retirees

A new university policy grants all Cornell retirees – who are at least 55 years old with at least 10 years of credited service – the option of either free OmniRide transit privileges, which provides full access to TCAT buses seven days a week, or a no-fee annual O parking permit, which allows parking in O, E and A areas. Retirees may also choose to purchase annual parking permits offered to employees, depending on eligibility and availability.
