Yale's Car Pool Program a Success So Far
The car pool program announced in October 2005 has been very well received. Participants are saving money in fuel and parking rates, which in turn contributes to the improvement of local air quality, reduces traffic congestion in New Haven, and decreases demand for parking on campus. Involvement in the program is continually encouraged.
The car pool program is available to all faculty and staff and has three primary incentives:
– Lower parking fees: When two people share a car, each will receive a 60% discount. When three or more people share a car, each will receive a 75% discount.
– A "Guaranteed Ride Home" program for all carpool registrants.
– Three free parking passes per month for each participant.
Although the program is limited to 300 employees, there are still openings available. If for any reason you are not pleased, you are guaranteed to get your assigned parking space back.
Full details of the program are available at http://www.yale.edu/parkingandtransit/alternatives. There is also a "bulletin board" on the website to help members of the Yale community find colleagues seeking to car pool. Parking & Transit staff members can answer any questions you may have about how the program works. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 2-9790.
