Employees and students who enroll in a carpool are guaranteed to only pay 25% of the cost of a Single Occupancy Vehicle Parking Permit and enjoy premium parking spaces. To learn more and apply for a permit, visit the carpool permit page.

Employees and students who want to find groups to ride share with should register using their Seattle University email at RideshareOnline.com.

Vanpool and Van Share

King County Metro supplies a van for a group of employees and students to commute together, or provides access to other institution's vanpools commuting between similar locations. The group shares Metro's van use fee and SU waives the on campus parking fee for vans parked on campus. In a vanpool, one group member keeps the vehicle at their home. In a van share, the van is kept at a train station, ferry dock, or park and ride where the groups meet. Find out more information here.


To join an existing Vanpool, SU employees needs to give the Vanpool booker/ leader (who ever collects the money and submits to the vanpool agency) a copy of their ORCA cards and fill out a simple form. The amount allotted is $100 per month per employee on Community Transit, Kitsap Transit, Metro Transit, and Pierce Transit Vanpool vans. If employee’s portion of the fare is over $100 then the employee would pay the difference out of pocket. For more information starting one’s own Vanpool, click here.
