Save money and park with ease when you share your commute to UCSF. When you’re a carpool member, you can purchase carpool parking permits on a pre-tax basis and gain access to spaces reserved exclusively for carpoolers.

A single-driver parking permit costs $233 per month. When you carpool, you can reduce your costs by at least 50%:

  • 2 carpool members = $116.50/month (per member)
  • 3 carpool members = $77.67/month (per member)
  • 4 carpool members = $58.25/month (per member)

Carpools with 6 or more people can form a vanpool and qualify for free parking.

Rules & Regulations
To qualify for our carpool program, the following criteria is required:

  • Each carpool needs a minimum of two people to qualify
  • Carpool permits can be used when there are two or more occupants in the vehicle at the time the vehicle pulls into the parking stall
  • A carpool permit holder is not required to carpool with a particular individual(s) but the permit holder must be present in vehicle with two occupants when pulling into the parking stall
  • Reserved stalls are available for carpool permit holders. Carpool permit holders must use these stalls when parking on weekdays
  • To be eligible for a carpool permit in the Surge and Woods lots your primary worksite must be the Parnassus campus, you must have a valid UCSF employee ID number, and an “active” UCSF employee status

Carpoolers may establish policies among themselves. To ensure the shared commute works for everyone, agreements should include:

  • Designated driver(s)
  • Pickup and drop-off times and locations
  • Costs (tolls, gas, insurance, etc.)
  • Frequency, sick days, vacations
  • In-transit rules (music, food, perfume, cell phones, etc.)
