Manage Your Vanpool
Applying for a vanpool permit
To apply for a vanpool permit, you need to form your vanpool group and request a carpool permit via our online portal. All members of the vanpool must enter their information when forming the group.
Starting a vanpool is the same process as starting a carpool in our online system. For step-by-step instructions, please refer to the following "how to" pages:
At least five members of your vanpool must meet the eligibility requirements for the Commute Club.
Your permit will be valid as soon as you complete the request for your carpool permit.
Vanpool parking needs
If your vanpool has problems or questions about parking on campus, contact us at 650.723.9362 or email us at email@example.com. We will be glad to work with you to help resolve your parking issues.
If your vanpool changes or ends
If your vanpool changes (e.g., one member is on leave) and still has at least five eligible members you must notify P&TS (physical permit) or update your group information online (virtual permits). If your vanpool drops below five Commute Club-eligible members, you will be given a one-month grace period to get back up the five-member threshold, after which you will be responsible for the full cost of your van as well the cost of your parking permit.
If your vanpool ends, your vanpool permit is no longer valid. If you have a physical permit, it must be returned.
Notify Parking & Transportation Services whenever there is a change or expected change in your vanpool to retain vanpool privileges for eligible members and/or to avoid penalties. If you have further questions about vanpooling, call us at 650.723.9362 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Fraudulent enrollment in a Stanford vanpool is a violation of Stanford's policies. Anyone found to be in violation of the vanpool 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.
