Does the institution offer reduced parking fees for car and van poolers?:

A brief description of the program:

Dalhousie has a carpooling program that offers a reserved RideShare parking space to students or employees who carpool to school together and discounts for individuals who car pool to the institution.

A minimum of three (3) full- time students, each of whom must be eligible to purchase a parking permit, may apply for a Student RideShare (Regular) Parking Permit, provided that all three (3) registered applicants do not reside within the peninsula of Halifax (South-east of the Armdale Rotary to Dutch Village Road/Joseph Howe Drive). Registered students (maximum of three <3>) may all reside at the same civic address, but they must all register their three (3) individual vehicles with Security Services. All registered participants must also be present in one of their registered vehicles on, at least, four (4) days each week, when parking at the University, in order to maintain their RideShare status.

As it is anticipated that there will be rare occasions when all RideShare participants will not be able to carpool together, due to other personal commitments, each RideShare participant will be eligible to receive a maximum of three (3) Complimentary Daily Parking Permits ($27.00 value, per person), each year (September 1 to August 31), to assist them, should they have to utilize their own personal vehicle on such occasions.
