CARPOOLS

Cars have 5 seats. Who’s in the other 4?

Joining a carpool is a cost effective alternative to driving on your own. By sharing the ride with people who live near you, or along your route to work, you can split the cost of gas and a parking permit. Plus, utilize the HOV lanes to bypass traffic jams.

Join the UH Commuter Club and register your carpool to receive additional benefits.

Contact Parking and Transportation Services for more information about setting-up or locating a carpool. Additionally, we will soon be launching a ride matching service which will allow users to search for the option that best fits their schedule.




VANPOOLS

When you have more than a car full, make it a vanpool.


Vanpools are groups of seven to fifteen people who ride to and from work each day in a passenger van. Vanpools generally cost about the same each month as you would pay for gasoline, but save the wear and tear on your personal vehicle, allow you to enjoy the benefits of HOV lanes, and are eligible for reserved parking spaces. Depending on the vanpool, you can ride on a full-time or part-time basis. Registered vanpools are eligible for reserved parking.


Contact Parking and Transportation Services for more information about setting-up or locating a vanpool.

Current UH Vanpools

Parking and Transportation Services is currently working with METRO to develop new van pool opportunities. If you are interested in creating a vanpool in your area please email parking@uh.edu. Include your name, contact information, area in which you live, and the number of people in your group
