Carpooling is a great way to get to and from campus. It will save you money, reduce wear and tear on your vehicle, help the environment and take some of the stress out of driving, allowing you to arrive to work refreshed and ready to start your day.
By carpooling you:
· Can purchase an annual carpool parking permit at the following reduced rates:
o $200 for carpools with two members
o $100 for carpools with three members
o $50 for carpools with four members
· Each Carpool Member receives 2 free daily scratch off permits per month
· Can take advantage of reserved parking spaces for carpools (spaces reserved until 2:00 pm)
· Will be registered for a chance to win monthly and annual prizes.
You are eligible to be a Bearly Drivers Carpool Club member if you meet the following criteria:
· You are a full time Danforth, North or West Campus employee
· Each carpool member has returned their regular annual Yellow or Red permit
· There are two or more members of your carpool
· All members have completed and signed the carpool application
· Primary Driver fills out the Parking and Transportation Vehicle Registration Form
Anyone found to be in violation of the Bearly Drivers Carpool Program and/or parking permit policies set forth by Washington University’s Parking and Transportation Services is subject to revocation of transportation and/or parking privileges. Instances of egregious misconduct may result in further administrative, disciplinary, and/or legal action, up to and including termination of employment
Forming your carpool
If you don’t already have carpool partners in mind, you can utilize the Bearly Drivers Ride-Matching Service (a service provided by GreenRide) to find potential carpool partners to share your commute. After you register and provide your specific commute info, you will receive contact information for other Washington University commuters with similar commutes. This link will connect you to GreenRide and get your carpool started! https://wustl.greenride.com
Applying for a carpool Permit
Download and complete the Bearly Drivers Carpool Permit Application here. Each carpool member must meet the eligibility requirements on the application and each member must complete and sign the application.
Your carpool must pick a “Primary Driver” who will be responsible for the permit. This individual must bring the application to our office at North Campus and also must fill out the Parking and Transportation Vehicle Registration Form.
If Your Carpool Changes
If your carpool disbands, your permit is no longer valid and must be returned immediately. If your carpool situation changes, please contact Parking and Transportation Services. If you have further questions about carpooling, email us at email@example.com.
Please note: Fraudulent enrollment in a Bearly Drivers Carpool is a violation of Washington University’s program. The employee(s) will immediately forfeit parking privileges and are subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
