EVGR Car Free Club Incentives
Members of the EVGR Car Free Club can receive a variety of rewards. Explore the ways you could benefit from going car free.
Zipcar for All
EVGR Car Free Club members automatically receive a free annual Zipcar membership and one hour of Zipcar driving credit each month that they remain a member. Members can sign up for this benefit on the EVGR Car Free Club Zipcar page.
"Car Freebie" Point System
Beyond Zipcar, all rewards in the EVGR Car Free Club are available using the Car Freebie point system.
Sign-up bonus: When you join the EVGR Car Free Club, you'll receive sign-up bonus points. These Car Freebie points can be cashed in upon completion of one month of membership.
Monthly Car Freebie point accrual: You will earn Car Freebie points for each month you remain in the EVGR Car-Free Club. No action is necessary other than continuing not to purchase a parking permit.
Note: If you drop out of the EVGR Car-Free Club, you can re-enroll in the club if you return your permit later to Parking & Transportation Services. You will not receive the sign-up bonus again, but you will be able to retain the Car Freebie points you accrued before leaving (within the same academic year).
Each quarter, Stanford Parking & Transportation Services will hold a prize drawing for EVGR Car Free Club members. If your name is drawn, you can redeem your Car Freebie points. The longer you remain in the club, the more points you will be able to redeem. Residents can only win once per academic year.
Cashing in Car Freebie Points
When your name is drawn, you can use the online portal on the P&TS website to redeem your Car Freebie points for any combination of prizes, such as ride-hailing services, online shopping, and transit. Different items on this “menu” have different point values.
Ride-hailing services: Car Freebie points can be used towards reimbursements for Uber, Lyft, and taxi rides. You will be required to submit receipts to receive reimbursement.
Online shopping: Choose whether to redeem Car Freebie points for Amazon and Google Express credits. For Amazon, you will have the option of credits to your account or a membership (three-month, annual, or student). For Google Express, you can choose to receive credits to your account.
Transit: When redeeming Car Freebie points, you can choose Caltrain and/or Clipper card reimbursements.
The EVGR Car Free Club is based on the academic year, which means it ends in June. If you have not had a chance to redeem your Car Freebie points by then, you will be given the opportunity to cash out your Car Freebie points for a membership gift.
