Carpool

One of the easiest ways to improve a commute is to share the ride with someone else. Carpooling is a great option for those that do not have a vehicle or a driver's license, as well as for neighbors that happen to live and/or work near each other. Participants can expect to save money by putting less miles on their vehicles, spending less on gas, and getting discounted or free parking. 

Payrool deduction-eligible faculty and staff can register their carpool with our CavPool program to receive additional benefits outlined below. Participants will exchange individually held parking permits to receive a CavPool permit at a prorated cost. If you have any questions, please email transportation@virginia.edu.

Find a Carpool

An easy way to start a carpool is to find someone in your neighborhood or workplace who is also interested in carpooling. Oftentimes, married couples and people who live together and work at the University may find it convenient to carpool.

If you are interested in carpooling but don’t have a partner in mind, UVA's private ride-matching database Zimride can help you find a partner or join an existing group.

Incentives

Free/discounted CavPool parking permit

Carpools are eligible for a free or discounted CavPool parking permit based on the number of participants. Permit costs are shared among participants and payroll deducted. The following table displays the discount structure.

# of Participants Discount
2 people 25%
3 people 40%
4 or more people 100% (free)

Occasional parking permits

Carpoolers annually receive 20 free days of occasional parking permits intended for days when they must drive themselves. These permits provide limited-use parking in an approved lot of the participant's choice.

Premium CavPool parking spaces

We have designated spaces in several of our parking areas for carpools and vanpools. These spaces are often located near the exits of parking garages, entrances of buildings, and near bus stops. Your CavPool permit allows you to park in designated CavPool spaces. Don't see CavPool spaces in your parking area? Email transportation@virginia.edu and we will review it as a possibility.

Note: A CavPool participant cannot park in a CavPool space when using an occasional parking permit.

Permit repurchase guarantee

In the event that a participant decides to leave a carpool, they are able to repurchase their original permit in their previous assignment within 30 days, even if there is a waitlist.

Guaranteed ride home

All carpoolers are eligible for a guaranteed ride home in case of emergencies through the regional RideShare program. Users must register in advance to receive vouchers for five free trips per calendar year.
