Carpooling is an excellent way to reduce the cost of gas, wear and tear on a vehicle, parking fees, traffic congestion and pollution.  Students, staff and faculty can register on the Smart Commute Tool to find a carpool partner.

Parking Services offers a Diamond Pool Parking Program for community members who are carpooling on campus.

York University in collaboration with Smart Commute - North Toronto, Vaughan has Priority Carpool Parking to allow  carpoolers convenient access to building entrances and walkways.
