Manage Your Carpool
Applying for a carpool permit
To apply for a carpool permit, download and complete the carpool permit application. Each carpool member must meet the eligibility requirements for the Commute Club, and each member must complete and sign the application.
Once your application is complete, you have several options to submit it:
- Bring it to our office at 340 Bonair Siding
- Fax it to 650.724.8676
- Email it (after scanning the completed application) to email@example.com
- Mail it to 340 Bonair Siding, Stanford, CA 94305-7255 (or MC: 7255)
We will notify you when your permit is ready to be picked up. Mail delivery normally takes seven to 10 days from the date we receive your application. If you select “pick up,” you can expect to hear from us within four to seven days.
If your carpool grows
If your carpool is successful and you have several other individuals interested in joining, you may consider starting a vanpool. Read more about starting a vanpool in our vanpool section.
If your carpool changes or ends
If your carpool changes (e.g., one member is on leave) and still has at least two eligible members, you must submit a new carpool application. In most cases, you will be able to continue using your existing permit. If your carpool ends or doesn’t have at least two eligible members, your carpool permit is no longer valid and must be returned.
Notify Parking & Transportation Services whenever there is a change or expected change in your carpool to retain carpool privileges for eligible members and/or to avoid penalties. If you have further questions about carpooling, call us at 650.723.9362 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Fraudulent enrollment in a Stanford carpool is a violation of Stanford's policies. Anyone found to be in violation of the carpool policies set forth by Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS) will immediately forfeit Commute Club privileges and be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or expulsion.
