Ride Share opportunities reminder for faculty, staff

A reminder from the Office of Sustainability and Energy Management that faculty and staff at Western Carolina University can take advantage of Ride Share for transportation costs and energy efficiencies and make use of campus carpool parking permits.

The program is designed for those who are seeking commute and travel partners. To register, users must have WCU email credentials and once registered, profile information is entered into a database that searches for other WCU commuters with similar commute routes and schedules.

Carpool permits allow up to four vehicles to be tied to an individual permit.

A tutorial on how to register can be found online. For more information, call 828-227-3562 or email
