More than 500 people who work at the med center carpool to work. For active carpooling participants, an updated carpool pass is now due.
One carpool partner from each group needs to go in person to UNMC Parking Services, located at the Student Life Center Room 2002, to receive an updated carpool pass by July 15.
Now is a great time to test out carpooling. Carpooling groups save money: Groups get to park on campus for free and save money on gasoline by commuting to work together. Faculty, staff and students who start to carpool can continue to park in their existing parking lot or even a better lot, depending on the carpool partner.
By reducing emissions from vehicle exhaust, carpooling can improve both human health and environmental health.
For people who are interested in carpooling but don’t know a med center colleague to partner with, check out the Metro Rideshare carpool matching program. It is a great way to find other commuters at the med center who have a similar work schedule and lifestyle preferences.
Participants who sign up to carpool through TravelSmart also have access to an emergency ride home in case a carpooling partner has to leave work unexpectedly.
