Carpooling and Ridesharing at Mohawk

 

 

 

Carpooling and ridesharing are great ways to save money and reduce your impact on the environment. These options allow you to leave your car at home more often – saving money on parking, fuel and maintenance costs.


Ridesharing

Ridesharing is a flexible option that allows you to find and book rides to campus with other Mohawk students and staff on a trip-by-trip basis (including one-time and recurring trips). Mohawk has partnered with Poparide to provide a secure online platform for you to arrange rideshares.

How does it work?

  1. Sign up for free at poparide.com/mohawk using your Mohawk e-mail.
  2. Drivers post their trips to campus on the platform, including trip details like date, time, origin, destination, price, and preferences.
  3. Passengers search for trips, view trip details and driver profiles, and book with the driver.
  4. Payment is transferred directly from the passenger to the driver through the app, using credit card or PayPal.

Ready to make a commitment? Try a carpool group!

Carpooling is an arrangement where two or more drivers agree to drive all members of the carpool on alternating days for a period of time. All parking spaces at Fennell and Stoney Creek campuses are eligible for carpool parking.

How does it work?

  • Share your parking permit with up to three others by adding additional license plate numbers to the permit.
  • Only one registered vehicle may use the permit to park on campus at any one time.

Visit the Parking and ONE card office for more information, or call Parking Services at 905-575-2121.
