Carpool Permits

Carpool Permits

Have a parking permit?  Want to share the driving?  Turn your parking permit into a carpool arrangement. 

Current permit holders who want to share the driving with another University faculty/staff or student, can exchange their parking permit for a carpool arrangement.  The permit holder still retains rights to their permit and pays the permit fee, however, now the people they carpool with can take turns driving in the carpool.  The carpool arrangement still only allows one vehicle to park during the day, but everyone can reduce the wear and tear on their vehicle by rotating who drives.  Plus, everyone will get FREE Night and Weekend privileges!

If you would like to form a carpool, please email parking-office@uiowa.edu or call (319) 335-1475 and let them know you want to exchange your parking permit for a carpool arrangement.  Don't know of anyone to carpool with?  Try the UI RideShare Network.

Commuting students who already have an established carpool can register for a commuter parking permit in MyUI (click on Student Information and My Parking under My UIOWA).  They should indicate their desire for a carpool permit when they are completing the online registration. 

Here are some tips for a successful carpool.
