Carpool Program allows 2-4 people who are driving to and from campus at the same time in one vehicle to associate a single parking permit with multiple vehicles (3 per carpool member).

Carpoolers in vehicle

Carpoolers are given four daily free parking codes per semester for when they need to drive a separate vehicle to campus and are enrolled in the Guaranteed Ride Home Program.

Carpool Eligibility Requirements

Carpoolers must be employed or registered for classes as a student at Towson University.  Schedules must be compatible (at least 75% of the time) when they are on the main campus.  Must live on a reasonable commuting path.

  • Participants in the carpool will determine one member who will purchase a parking permit prior to submitting the carpool application.
  • Very Important:  If more than one vehicle linked to the carpool is parked on campus at the same time without using one of the allotted free parking codes or paying for visitor parking, it is considered a shared permit violation and violators are subject to a $300 fine for each vehicle and other university sanctions.
