Vanpools With Low Monthly Fares

For as little as $60 per month, you could ride to work in a PART vanpool from several different cities and towns.  Contact Ruby Randall at 336-291-4315 or rubyb@partnc.org for more details.

Check out these vanpools with open seats to see if one matches your commute. Vanpooling is great! You get to relax, read, sleep or chat during your commute, instead of focusing on driving. Join a vanpool today!

Vanpool starting up!
Leaving from 2629 Ramada Road (I-85 Plaza), Burlington to 101 Manning Drive, Chapel Hill (non-stop).  Work hours are 8am to 5pm.  Please email Terri King at twking@med.unc.edu if you are interested.  A full van of 15 riders will pay $50.23 per month (for CAP members; $70.23 for non-CAP members). 

*Please note that the first month cost will be for deposit of van and prior month of rental which will be $71.65 (for CAP members; $91.65 for non-CAP members) which will revert back to the normal pay after that.

 


Save Money by Carpooling!

This summer, spend your money on a vacation instead of fuel! Carpooling to campus can save you hundreds of dollars each month. Add your ride to Zimride and find other UNC commuters going the same way!

Zipcar and Summer and School > Summer and School

There’s a little secret that most people won’t tell you because they want to keep it to themselves; summer is the BEST time to be on campus. Your favorite restaurants aren’t crowded, classes are laid back and friends want to head out on day trips.

This summer, take a Zipcar. They’ll be available by the hour or day, ready to take you home, to visit friends or just on an errand with gas and insurance always included. Join today for $10 at zipcar.com/unc and get $25 in driving to try it out with the promo code solstice.

P.S. Graduating or headed to an internship this summer? Wherever you go, take your zipcard with you and you’ll always have access to wheels without worrying about parking tickets, insurance or being towed in the big city. *Hint* Join before you leave school to get your college discount.
