Carpools and vanpools provide flexibility and the point-to-point convenience of car travel along with the opportunity to dramatically cut fuel costs, get free/cheaper parking, utilize HOV lanes, and reduce wear and tear on your personal vehicle.
Carpooling is an ideal cost-saving arrangement, particularly for those individuals who commute long distances to and from work each day, have limited access to public transit, and arrive and depart from work on a relatively set schedule.
For employee carpools, the primary driver and secondary participants must apply for the carpool. Once all the participants have registered in the carpool, the participants will be contacted by TPS staff with instructions for picking up the new parking permit.
2-person employee carpools share in the cost of the subsidized annual permit rate. The monthly cost may be pretax payroll-deducted from the primary driver at $28 per month.
3 + person employee carpools receive a 100% subsidized annual permit.
2 and 3+ person employee carpools are eligible to park in designated carpool spaces which are available in certain decks.
Carpool parking assignments are determined by TPS with consideration of requested location.
Apps like Uber, Lyft, Waze, and Scoop make it easy to access flexible transportation options. When using these apps, please remember not to use Woodruff Circle Transit Hub as your pick - up or drop - off address. Woodruff Circle is restricted to bus traffic only. On Emory’s main campus, use this address instead:
