Share a Ride Car Pooling Discounts and Benefits

Penn Offers Discounts for Carpooling

Full-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff may participate and take advantage of car pooling discounts.  Interested commuters looking to form a carpool only need a single driver with a permit to begin the registration process. Once a driver has a permit,  the driver can register other group member to become a carpool. Note: commuters carpooling will receive priority when applying for a new permit.

Registration is on an annual basis and each carpool member will receive a pre-tax deduction via payroll. Carpool discounts: 25% for a two-person carpool; 50% for a three-person carpool; or 75% for a four-person carpool. Discounts are subject to change.
