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

A brief description of the program:

UC Davis meets the criteria for this credit by offering up to 60% off standard parking permit rates for members of a carpool and a discount of approximately 43% off standard parking permit rates for vanpool vehicles.

UC Davis Transportation and Parking Services offers discounted carpool parking permits to carpools consisting of two or more individuals. The carpools are required to register at TAPS and purchase a minimum of a quarter-long parking permit to receive the discount. Vanpool vehicles at UC Davis receive a significant discount of $252 off an annual parking permit. In addition to discounted parking permits, members of carpools and vanpools are qualified for additional benefits such as, dedicated parking spaces, complimentary occasional use daily parking permits, access to the emergency ride home program and pre-tax payroll deduction benefits.

In addition to the benefits offered by UC Davis TAPS, the Yolo Transportation Management Association offers a rideshare incentive of $25 per month for the first two month for new carpools registered with their online system and an additional $25 incentive check and a complimentary car wash after one year of carpooling.
