OP-T2-32: Carpool/Vanpool Matching
NAU Sustainability Coordinator
Office of Sustainability
Does the institution participate in a carpool/vanpool matching program?:
A brief description of the program:
NAU has a carpool program: “Meet someone new and save! As a carpooling alternative, please contact the Transportation Services Dispatch office at 523-2469 to find out who might be travelling to your destination. With as much current information available we will provide names and numbers of folks that might be able to share the cost with you. It’s worth a try.”
Note: “In Fall 2009 we modified the permit to allow it to be shared amongst multiples (it can be physically removed and placed on another vehicle). This is exceptionally helpful to off campus students and employees who wish to car-pool. Permit owners can have up to 5 vehicles associated to 1 permit. This is a great option for student commuters."
The NAU Campus also participates in the ZimRide program that encourages all community members to use online software for carpooling.
