You don’t need us to tell you that carpooling can save you money on gas and vehicle maintenance, and can even reduce stress. If you’re not already carpooling, maybe you’re worried about losing the flexibility you occasionally need to fit your schedule.

Register for uO's Carpool Perks Program

Now uOttawa makes it easier than ever to start carpooling, with new Carpool Perks to help make ridesharing work for you.

If you don’t know of anyone to share the ride with, we can help you find people to drive with by using our ride-matching service at! This site can help match you with potential carpooling partners who live and work near you - a uOttawa email address is required to sign up.

You can even try out carpooling for up to three months without fear of losing your old parking permit if you decide to go back to driving by yourself.

To register as a uOttawa carpool group, please fill out the carpool application form (PDF, 271KB) and submit it to the Parking's Office.
