Carpooling is a simple way to take part in the climate change challenge while saving money, reducing congestion and conserving energy along the way. Commuters who live near each other and share a common destination form the simplest and most common "carpool" arrangement. Carpooling is ideal for those who commute long distances, are looking to save money, and have limited access to public transit or have few transportation options available to them.

Steps to Form a Carpool

  1. Find a carpool partner: Find a Western colleague on your own or use the Rideshare portal with help from our partner, the City of London https://uwo.regionalrideshare.ca/en/my/

  2. Read and agree to the Carpool Program Policies

  3. Indicate your interest and schedule an appointment with Parking & Visitor Services by:
    • visiting office in person (room 4150 Support Services Building) or
    • emailing the office at wparking@uwo.ca
