Carpool: Eligibility, Guidelines, Questions & Answers

Eligibility

A carpool consists of two or more ACC students and/or employees sharing the same car to an ACC campus. Two or more Carpool members must exit the vehicle at the time it is parked in a Carpool parking space.

Hangtags

The Carpool hangtag is free but requires an ACC parking permit. Both must be displayed together (photo below) and are valid for one school year (Sept. 1-Aug. 31). Each Carpool group will receive one Carpool hangtag that can be used on any vehicle registered in the group.

Parking spaces

Carpool parking spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Only vehicles with a Carpool hangtag may park in the designated Carpool spaces before 10 a.m. After 10 a.m., Carpool spaces become available to anyone with a current ACC parking permit. If your Carpool vehicle is parked before 10 a.m., you may remain in the parking space until you leave campus.

Participation

The person who submits the Carpool Application Form & Invitation is the primary participant and will serve as the point of contact between ACC and the other group members. You may participate in more than one Carpool group to accommodate a varying class/work schedule.

Questions & Answers

I want to use my convertible vehicle to carpool. What should I do?

Send an email to carpool@austincc.edu.

What if I have an emergency but did not use my vehicle for Carpool that day?

Use your ACC Green Pass to ride any Capital Metro transit service. If you need to use a taxi for an emergency, ACC's Sustainability Office may reimburse the cost up to $50, twice a year upon verification from the Carpool group members and with the original receipt.

What if I see only one person exiting a vehicle in the Carpool parking space before 10 a.m.?

Please send the vehicle’s license plate number, parking permit number, make, and model to carpool@austincc.edu.
