Carpooling at UConn

Leave a comment

Attention UConn commuters! This year, parking services is offering a carpooling program available to commuter students at the University of Connecticut.  The aim of the program is to encourage students to reduce their carbon footprint with the incentives of saving gas and money by riding to school together.  Carpooling is also a great way to save some money on your parking pass!

Students may choose to share a permit for North or South Garage, commuter lots, W Lot, or C Lot.  The great thing about this permit is that you’re sharing the space, not just one car.  Because each carpooler’s vehicle is registered, you can rotate who’s on driving duty.  Additionally, parking services provides 2 complimentary day passes per carpooler into this deal that can be used in any commuter lot, just in case you can’t make the carpool sometimes.  If 2 days isn’t enough, additional permits may be purchased at a low price.  So if you’ve got a couple of friends who also commute to UConn from your area, then get together and purchase a carpool permit!  Check out the parking services webpage to learn more about how you can sign up for this great program.  http://web2.uconn.edu/parking/carpool.html
