+-Panther Plus Carpooling Program

The Panther Plus Carpooling Program is offered to a limited number of participants on a first-come, first served basis. To qualify, each carpool requires a minimum of 2 Chapman University staff, administrator, faculty, or commuter students who are committed to carpooling at least 3 days per week for one full academic year. At least one participant in each carpool group must be a full time staff, administrator, faculty, or commuter student. Each participant is required to purchase a parking permit at the part-time employee rate of $175.00. If a participant wishes to waive the cost of their permit, they may do so; however, carpool groups will then split the cost amongst each other. A minimum of two permits must be purchased.

  • The carpool group will be issued 1 Carpool Hang-tag for display in the vehicle on the days you carpool.
  • The carpool group will be issued 1 transponder to access Lastinger/Barrera structure for use on the days you carpool.
  • The carpool group will park in Carpool Preferred Reserved Spaces in Lastinger, Barrera, West Palm and Dodge, if available. If all of the Carpool Preferred Reserved Spaces are occupied, the carpool group may park in any non-reserved space in the lots listed above.
  • On non-carpool days each participant will be required to park in any non-reserved space in the West Campus Parking Structure.
  • Each participant will be required to complete a Payroll Deduction Form for their pass or pay in full at the Cashier's Office.

To apply, simply complete the Carpool Registration Form and turn it in to the Office of Human Resources, located in DeMille Hall, Room 103.

Please carefully review the Rules and Regulations

Any misuse of the carpool hang-tag or transponder will result in the loss of carpool privileges, indefinitely. Participants in the Panther Plus Carpool Program are not eligible to participate in the Rideshare Incentives quarterly prize drawings.

+-Chapman U-Pass Plan for OCTA Bus Riders

Full and Part-time faculty, staff, and commuter students who join the Chapman U-pass plan will be eligible for the "$1.25 per ride" program. The maximum monthly cost for staff and faculty is $69, and $45 for students. The actual cost is based on the number of rides during the month.
