Carpooling is an environmentally-friendly way for Georgia Tech students, faculty, and staff to commute to campus and also to share the cost a campus parking permit. The carpool permit costs $100 less than the Annual Individual Permit price and can be split among carpool members.
Georgia Tech students and employees can find carpool partners through the Georgia Commute Options website and their GA Commuter app (GAcommuter in the app store, currently only for iOS). The website offers the opportunity to choose only within the GT community. Georgia Commute Options also provides additional commuter support to employees, such as incentives for taking alternative commutes, including carpooling.
Waze Carpool is now available in Atlanta, and can be used to match drivers and riders commuting at similar times and on similar routes. To get started, download the Waze Carpool app (iOS and Android). Be sure to use your gatech.edu email address to best match with others in the Georgia Tech community. Select whether to request or offer a ride, and then start saving money by carpooling to work!
For students or employees that wish to borrow a vehicle for brief periods, Zipcars are available at several locations throughout campus. Zipcar is a membership-based car sharing company that provides members access to a variety of new fuel-efficient vehicles. Georgia Tech's collaboration with Zipcar provides convenient pickup locations and discounts for students, faculty, and staff.
