Greener Commute / Commute Trip Reduction

Commute by Carpool


Carpooling will save you money, help the environment and, in the Puget Sound region, help you get there faster when you use the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes.

  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce your commute costs
  • Make new friends
  • Up-front, preferential parking reserved for carpools and vanpools

A carpool refers to two to six people sharing the ride to work or school in a private vehicle. To register for a carpool all members of the carpool must vist the Parking Office together to sign up. You may register as many vehicles and people as you wish and we will issue one decal/hang tag to share among the vehicles. When members of the carpool must drive alone, you may use the decal/hang tag to park, but do not use the carpool parking spaces. When more than one car that is registered in the carpool must drive to campus, all others that do not have the hang tag must stop at the Parking Booth and purchase a daily pass before parking.

A vanpool refers to an arrangement where several people (7 to 15) share the ride to work or school in a van. The vanpool group travels from home (or a prearranged meeting place) to work or school and back in a single round trip.
