Stanford Transportation impacts during Winter Closure
Refer to our Winter Closure Impacts to Customer Service, Parking Enforcement, Marguerite, and Transit Service article to learn more.
Since many employees continue to work remotely on a part-time or full-time basis, we are unable to reinstate Stanford's Clean Air Cash and Carpool permit programs at this time.
At this time you may informally share the cost of commuter permits and expenses, but free or reduced-cost permits and reserved carpool spaces will not be available.
If you share your commute with at least one other eligible Stanford commuter, you may save money on gas, tolls, and wear and tear on your vehicle.
The answer to these and other issues is Stanford's free Emergency Ride Home program. You are automatically enrolled in the Emergency Ride Home program as a carpool member. (Please note that overtime is not covered.)
Carpools crossing state-owned bridges during peak hours can qualify for a $2 toll discount and a full or 50% discount on the region’s express lane system using FasTrak. Please refer to the Fastrak’s Toll Locations list to learn more about carpool tolls.
The Bay Area Carpool Program, powered by 511.org and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), offers rewards for carpoolers. Visit their website to learn more about their ongoing and future promotions.
