Start or Join a Carpool
Carpool parking is free! Share the ride and the savings.
How the Carpool Program Works
Two-person carpools are eligible for a free 'C'-Carpool permit and carpools of three or more are eligible for a free 'A'-Carpool permit.
Two-person carpools that elect to have 'A' carpool permits will will have to pay the difference in price between the 'C' and 'A' permit. Carpools of three or more will receive an ‘A’-Carpool permit but will have the option to park in 'C'-Carpool and 'C' spaces (except at Hoover Pavilion Garage) if they so choose.
Send an email to the Commute Club if you have questions or need assistance.

If you don't already have your carpool partners in mind, visit our Carpool and Vanpool Listings page to find Stanford affiliates to share your commute. You can view existing carpools and vanpools in addition to Stanford commuters who are interested in sharing the ride.You can post your own listing to increase your chances of finding a match.
If you have questions about the service, or if it does not lead to a match for you, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may be able to help identify other alternatives available to you, such as transit and/or biking.
