Parking and Transportation Services is now offering discounted permits and premium parking spaces to Cougars who commute to campus with three or more individuals in their vehicle.
Part of the new COAST program, this incentive is open to all faculty, staff and full-time students who carpool at least three days a week.
Below is an overview of the permit discount structure, which varies depending on how many people are in your carpool.
|# of People
|| Permit Discount
|| Garage Permit Price*
|| $387.50 ($129.17/person)
|4 or more - person carpool
|| 75% off
|| $193.75 ($48.44/person)
*Please note, ALL carpool spaces are located in faculty/staff parking areas, so discounted rates are calculated from current faculty/staff permit prices. ALL CARPOOLERS, regardless of classification, will be charged a discounted f/s rate.
PTS is currently in the works of partnering with a ride-matching service that will help individuals find others to carpool with. Details will be posted, as soon as they're available.
