Obtaining your Discounted Parking Permit:
Once a carpool group is formed, each participant should review the Carpool Agreement.  A copy of the Carpool Agreement must be printed, signed, and submitted to the Parking Permit Office, located on level G of the East Garage.  All members of your carpool are required to be present when registering.  Please remember to have everyone bring their VUMC ID badge, their vehicle registration and current parking permit should they have one.

Each parker is payroll deducted to cover each person's share of the discounted parking permit.  The discount is divided by the number of carpool participants and is limited to Faculty or Staff.

The carpool's parking location is determined by any parking location currently held by one of the registered permit holders in your carpool.  If no one currently has parking, it will be determined by availability.

Options to Drive Separately on Occasion:
The following options are available should a carpool participant need to drive separately on occasion:

  • Park for FREE at lot 127  (Add Link to Map)
  • Participate in the RTA's Emergency Ride Home Programs (carpool members must review the Policies and complete the Application previous to needing a ride).
  • Purchase “One Day Parking Permit” hangtags for $5.00 each.
