Employees and students alike can share the ride to work or school. Unlike the RideShare commuter program—which is restricted to eligible employees—any Cornell community member can join a carpool.  

Getting Started:

  • One person purchases and is responsible for the commuter parking permit.
  • Carpoolers can transfer the permit among registered vehicles.
  • Carpool members may also be eligible for the OmniRide program, allowing more flexibility for their commute.  
  • Need help finding a carpool partner? Try Zimride to find your car mate.


  • Those sharing the ride to campus make their own arrangements for sharing commuting costs.
  • Cornell community members must register any personal vehicle driven or parked on campus.
  • Parking permits should not be displayed on vehicles that are not registered with the university, unless it is a loaner or rental vehicle.
