Yes, but parking is a hassle and pretty pricy, especially if you live on campus because the student parking lot isnt that close to the dorms.
Do you think the parking issue would be much of a problem for people who only use their cars when leaving campus? The buses should go by the parking lots, too, right?
They dont go to the cage parking lot but some do pick up/drop off near other parking lots.
I don't think it's worth the hassle... there are ways to get rides with other people. I think there's even a website or something that you can use to find a ride with someone if you don't know anyone already... I heard this at an open house session.

Freshmen are allowed to bring cars with them to Tech, though many find it to be more of a hassle than a convenience. Cars are helpful when students are trying to get out of town or go back home, but for getting around town, it really is just as easy (and a lot cheaper) to take the bus. Taking care of a car while you’re on campus can also be a pain. Off-campus students are more likely to have cars and must purchase a commuter parking pass in order to park on campus before 5 p.m. A commuter pass costs $57 a semester and $114 a year. Even many off-campus students choose to leave their cars at the apartment and walk, bike, or take the bus to class. No one is guaranteed a spot on campus, and when students do find spots, they are often faced with up to a 15- or 20-minute walk to class from the parking lot. Parking lots also tend to be the site for many car accidents at Tech.
Thanks to a great public transportation system, driving to class really is unnecessary. While some students do prefer the freedom of having their own car on campus, finding a decent parking place is guaranteed to be a challenge. The trick to finding a parking spot on campus is to go early or go late. Students who have 8 a.m. classes or night classes usually don’t have any problem finding some place to park. The worst time to park is around lunch time or in the middle of the day.
