Help the University in our commitment to embrace sustainability while reducing your impact on the environment. Join a carpool! A qualifying carpool is two people or more sharing a ride and reaping the benefits of minimizing traffic congestion, being green, and saving on the cost of parking permits. Learn more about our free on-line carpool matching program sponsored by Zimride here.
Carpooling is one of the many features of the UR Connections program to encourage alternative transportation. You can find out more about other UR Connections activities here.
Requests for a transfer to another parking lot can be made online and are processed on a first requested/first transferred basis as space allows. Employees will be placed on a waiting list for the particular zone assignment they desire. Waitlists are reviewed regularly and transfers are processed as space allows
