Benefits of Carpooling
Carpool parking is free! Share the ride and the savings.
Share your commute with at least one other eligible Stanford commuter and you may:
- Save money on gas and wear and tear on your vehicle
- Receive free carpool permit. With more members in your carpool, receive a more versatile permit.
- Purchase up to eight daily permits per eligible carpool member per month for days you need to drive separately.
- Enjoy premium reserved carpool-only parking spaces (reserved until 10 a.m.)
Please view the Carpool Parking Map to see designated parking areas for carpools on campus.
In case of an emergency
- "What if my child gets sick or I get sick and I have to leave immediately?"
- "What if my carpool driver unexpectedly leaves without me or becomes unavailable to give me a ride home?"
- "What if my neighbor calls to tell me that my home is on fire?"
