Carpooling can be a great way for staff and students to save money on their commute to campus by sharing gas, permit, and other expenses.
To assist in encouraging carpools, UW-Platteville is doing the following
- If you register your carpool with the University Police, your carpool will receive two free one-day passes for each member of the carpool
- When you buy an annual or semester permit, you can register multiple vehicles
- You may purchase as many visitor permits as you need
- The University has also enrolled in an on-line rideshare board, zimride.uwplatt.edu, that provides a secure, convenient ride to set up regular or periodic carpools which is separate from the first option.
If you decide to register a carpool, you agree that only ONE annual permit will be purchased by the registered members. Notify the Police Administration to remove a member.
A current annual parking permit must be purchased before bringing in the form. Vehicles included in the carpool must be listed on the form.
Complete the carpool form. The first name on the list will be the leader/contact of the group. The leader will need to bring in the form and pick up the free permits.
