Carpool

Students

Form a carpool with classmates or neighbors – it’s a great way to improve your commute and go green. Get started by visiting Share the Ride NC, where you will be matched with other riders based on location, schedule and preferences. There’s even a tool to calculate the cost savings and environmental impact of carpooling.

Preferred parking spaces for carpoolers are located on many Wake Tech campuses:

  • Scott Northern Wake Campus - Lot B, Lot E, Lot F, Lot N and Parking Deck 1
  • Perry Health Sciences Campus - All levels of the Wake Tech Parking Deck
  • Western Wake Campus

To obtain your carpool permit and get a premier parking spot, call 919-532-5935 or email [email protected].

Employees

As an employee, there are added benefits for those who carpool or use other sustainable transportation methods when you register with Share the Ride NC. You’ll be able to search for a carpool or track your smart commute in the Commute Calendar. When you track your commute, you will earn points that you can redeem for prizes through the GoPerks incentive program. You can also earn points for working from home when you track your "non-commute."

Employees also are eligible to use the Emergency Ride Home program. When you register for ERH, you will be able to print a free voucher good for a rental car or taxi ride home. You will be responsible only for the taxi driver's tip or gas used in the rental car. You may use the service twice in a given month and up to six times per calendar year. Detailed instructions for the service will be provided once you register. Students do not qualify for this program.
