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.

UBC’s Carpool Incentives
Currently, there are two primary incentives to help make it easier for you to carpool:
- 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!
- 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
