Carpool Program

You are allowed to park in the carpool spaces that are appropriate for your current PLU parking decal. Example – if you have a Commuter decal, then you are only allowed to park in carpool spaces within the Commuter lots. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

Objective
To reduce the number of vehicles coming to campus and in an effort to 1) alleviate parking demand and 2) to meet our state mandated goals to reduce vehicle miles traveled and the number of single occupancy vehicle trips to our worksite.

Philosophy
The PLU carpool program should establish clear benefits to the employee and/or student as an incentive for choosing to carpool over driving alone.

Eligibility
Employees or commuter students that carpool to PLU three or more days per week and have two or more carpool members are eligible for a carpool parking pass.

Pass
Each carpool applicant must fill out a carpool application individually and have a current PLU Commuter or Employee decal. You will receive your own carpool decal to place on the inside of your windshield, just like your primary parking decal. You will need to reapply for a carpool decal each academic year.

Non-Business Hours
From 5:00 PM to 7:00 AM carpool spaces shall be available for any person to park.

Expiration
Carpool passes are renewed annually.
