What is a Carpool?
A carpool consists of two or more people who regularly arrive on campus together in one vehicle. The carpool program is open to all University of Manitoba students and employees. The university provides a number of carpooling incentives including over 30 preferred-location carpool parking stalls (with more coming soon!).
Carpooling is a simple way for individuals to share their commute with others, save money and reduce their environmental impact. Currently about 14% of people commute to the University of Manitoba by carpool.
