Carpooling is a cost-efficient way to commute and park on campus. Sharing a ride with a co-worker can save on gas, vehicle maintenance, parking costs and lessens traffic congestion and pollution.
A registered carpool may consist of 2 or more eligible faculty/staff members who can commit to riding together each work day, except for those days a member must drive separately for personal reasons. For a nominal fee, any carpool of 4 or more members may obtain a reserved parking space in a lot or structure in proximity to their workplace, where available. Each carpool member will pay an equal portion of the parking permit and reserved space if requested, by payroll deduction.
The carpool must not start on U-M property or any Park & Ride lots within the City of Ann Arbor.
To obtain the Carpool application and payroll deduction forms, please contact our Alternative Transportation Coordinator.
Please note: faculty and staff members can create “informal” carpools also, where the participants possess their own parking permits and share rides with others. If this is a regular arrangement, please contact Alternative Transportation below.
