Current commuter students who will be able to commute together the majority of the time are encouraged to apply for the Carpool Program. There is a four (4) person maximum to carpool groups. All members of the carpool must be present when submitting a carpool application, with a primary permit holder identified on the application.
One annual hang tag permit will be issued per carpool group. Carpool permits are valid in any commuter lot, multipermit lot, and the NUC visitor pay-to-park lot (Lot 10). If a vehicle displaying a carpool permit receives a citation, the citation will be added to the registered owner of the vehicle’s account. If the vehicle is not registered, the citation will be added to the primary permit holder’s account. Violation of any terms, conditions, or parking rules and regulations may be cause for revocation of the carpool permit.
Carpool Permit Cost
The cost of the carpool permit is the annual permit price of $195, to be split evenly among all carpool group individuals. Payments can be with cash, check or charged to the individual’s Bursar account. No additional annual permit may be purchased by a member of a carpool group.
- Two-person groups will be charged $97.50 each
- Three-person groups will be charged $65.00 each
- Four-person groups will be charged $48.75 each
When You Can't Ride Together
Each carpool member may receive up to six (6) complimentary one-day passes per semester for days that they are unable to ride with the carpool. These must be requested in advance in person at the TPS office and be properly displayed on the vehicle before arriving to campus. Once these passes are used up, or if forgotten, individuals must either park in a pay-to-park location for the time needed or purchase a temporary pass.
Changing Carpool Members
Carpool groups are welcome to add additional members, or change members, at the approval of all approved group members and the submission of a Carpool Amendment Agreement form and a new Carpool Application. This will allow new individuals to be added to the permit with their registered vehicles, but no financial changes will be made from TPS; it will be the responsibility of the carpool group to work out any financial obligations within the group due to new or changed members.
Disbanded Carpool Groups
If a carpool group disbands for any reason it is the responsibility of the group, defaulting to the primary permit holder, to notify the TPS office. All members will be required to verify the disbandment of the group by completing a Carpool Amendment Agreement form at the TPS office, and can exchange the Carpool permit for one annual permit with the appropriate Commuter classification at no additional cost. It is the responsibility of the carpool group to determine who gets this permit, and to work out any financial obligations to other group members. No refunds will be given for disbanded groups.
