The first step to register with the CavPool program is to have an active carpool or vanpool in which all members are U.Va faculty, staff, or foundation/contractor employees who are willing to participate in the program. The members should identify the individual within the carpool or vanpool with the most desirable U.Va parking permit that all members want to share for the preferred assignment. This rider will be considered the Primary Rider and will need to fill out the online CavPool Registration form to start the registration process. During this part of the registration, the Primary Rider will be asked to indicate in which lot each member would like their Occasional Parker Permits to be valid (Emmet/Ivy Garage, Culbreth Road Garage, or U-Hall). At this time, a combination of locations for a rider's Occasional Parker Permit pack is not available.
After submitting the online registration, Parking and Transportation will mail an information packet including payroll deduction and additional information forms specific to each rider. Each rider will need to fill out the additional forms and provide signatures where applicable before returning the forms to the Primary Rider. When the CavPool Application Packet is complete and ready to be submitted to Parking and Transportation, the Primary Rider will need to make an appointment with a Parking and Transportation representative by calling 434-924-7231 between the hours of 7:30am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday. All riders will need to be present at the time of the appointment to complete the registration process, make applicable payment or sign up for payroll deduction, and receive their Occasional Parker Permits.
When all riders have completed the registration process, the Primary Rider will be presented with the CavPool permit.
