To reduce the number of vehicles traveling to campus and help ease parking demand. Carpooling also allows PLU to meet state mandated goals to reduce vehicle miles traveled and the number of single occupancy vehicle trips to our worksite.
The PLU carpool program should establish clear benefits to the employee and/or commuter student as an incentive for choosing to carpool versus driving alone.
Only employees and commuter students are eligible to apply for a PLU carpool pass.
Participants must have two or more carpool members. Each carpool applicant must fill out a carpool application whether they drive a vehicle or not. Any member of your carpool group that will be driving a vehicle to campus must have a registered vehicle and display their primary employee or commuter decal, in addition to their carpool pass, next to each other on the inside, bottom, driver’s side windshield. Carpool passes expire with your primary decal and must be renewed each year to continue in the carpool program. Drivers with car pool passes are only allowed to park in the marked carpool spaces of the lots authorized for their primary decals. For example, if you have a Commuter decal, then you are only allowed to park in carpool spaces within the Commuter lots.
To apply for a carpool pass, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
From 5:00 PM to 7:00 AM carpool spaces shall be available for any person to park.
Carpool passes are renewed annually.
