Caltech Carpool Program

An Employee carpool consists of at least two Caltech staff/student/faculty who lives outside of the "Caltech boundary" defined by the following roads: Del Mar, Catalina, Arden, Hill and California and who do not live in Caltech-owned housing. They must travel together the majority of their commute trips to Caltech and travel together for at least half of their commute distance.

Registered carpool vehicles may purchase a carpool parking permit at a reduced cost. The total cost of the permit is divided equally among the carpool participants. Parking in carpool spaces is on a first-come, first served basis. Vehicles parked in carpool spaces must display a valid carpool permit.
