During this session at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 20 via Zoom, Delia will share information to help you feel more confident about getting to campus on two wheels.  

This session is open to faculty, staff, and students. To register, visit gmu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMkd-ChqD0qH9cRNPNUCtpEaStXgrNQh_Xv.

Change Your Commute: Vanpool

Looking for a new way to get to work when you come back to campus?

Consider vanpooling. Travel with the same group of Mason colleagues. Reduce the time you spend driving. Plus, for full-time faculty/staff, the cost of your commute can be subsidized by Mason up to $270/month.

You can start with four co-workers and you. For details, visit transportation.gmu.edu/carpoolvanpool/employee-vanpool or contact Parking and Transportation at transpo@gmu.edu
