Car + Vanpooling

Carpooling is defined as two or more persons sharing their daily commute on a regular basis.
It’s a simple way for individuals to reduce their emissions while saving money, reducing congestion and conserving energy along the way. Just under 15% of people travel to and from UBC by carpool or vanpool.

Ride-Share Options for UBC

As of March 31, 2018 the Jack Bell Foundation’s ride-share program will no longer be in service. C+CP is exploring other ride-sharing, vanpooling, and / or ride-matching services for the campus.

Another independent options for ride-sharing includes Spare Rides who offers ride-sharing service where you sign up as a driver and / or a passenger and you get matched up with people that are making a similar trip to you.

UBC’s Carpool Incentives

Currently, there are two primary incentives to help make it easier for you to carpool:

  1. Transferable Parking Passes: UBC Parking allows you to register multiple vehicles on one parking pass. That means you and your carpool buddies can take turns driving, but you only have to pay for one parking pass between you!
  2. Emergency Ride Home: helps you feel comfortable leaving your personal vehicle at home, knowing you will be reimbursed for a cab in the case of an urgent matter you have to attend to
