Eligibility Requirements for Carpools
Please note: All official members of a carpool or vanpool must work/study on the same campus (either at main campus or SRWC). For example, if you currently are in a two-person carpool and one person is on main campus and one is at Stanford Redwood City, you would no longer be eligible for a two-person carpool permit.
To qualify for a carpool permit, each member of your official carpool must meet all of the eligibility requirements for the Commute Club and must not already have a permit or be receiving Clean Air Cash. Additionally, carpool members must live in areas that would facilitate a reasonable and expected commute pattern that is consistent with the intent of the Commute Club program.
Carpoolers who are not eligible for the Commute Club (such as night- and evening-shift employees or employees at off-campus sites) do not quality for free Stanford carpool permits. However, they are welcome to share a ride with Stanford carpools as an unofficial member of the carpool. Questions about eligibility can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that membership in the Commute Club and participation in the carpool program is a privilege. Stanford University Parking & Transportation Services reserves the right to deny membership when an individual’s actions are or appear to be inconsistent with the goals of our programs.
Anyone found to be in violation of the Commute Club and/or parking permit policies set forth by Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS) is subject to revocation of transportation incentives and/or parking privileges. Instances of egregious misconduct may result in further administrative, disciplinary, and/or legal action, up to and including termination of employment or expulsion.
