Parking Facilities is now offering a carpool permit to individuals who currently hold a valid “A” or “B” parking permit. By utilizing the carpool permit, individuals who regularly commute together have the opportunity to save money on parking.
A carpool is defined as three or more Purdue faculty and/or staff members who drive together as their regular means of commuting from home to the West Lafayette campus.
To get started, determine your carpool partners and complete the Carpool Registration Form to obtain your carpool permit. Each carpool will be assigned one carpool permit to share, and it must be displayed with an “A” or “B” permit. Only one “A” or “B” parking permit must be held per carpool group, and the carpool permit must be held by the individual who pays for that “A” or “B” parking permit.
Once a carpool group has been determined, the individuals who will not hold the carpool permit may return their “A” or “B” parking passes to Parking Facilities, and they will either receive a refund (if the total cost of the permit was paid up front) or their payroll deductions will cease. The permit holder can then make arrangements with carpoolers to help share the cost of the single remaining permit.
Remember, carpool vehicles must display both the carpool permit and a valid “A” or “B” permit as posted. There is no additional fee for the carpool permit.
