Updates from Parking and Transportation
Change Your Commute: Vanpool
Looking for a new way to get to work? 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.
Seats currently available from the Fredericksburg area (work hours 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.). Or, start your own vanpool with four coworkers. For details, visit transportation.gmu.edu/carpoolvanpool/employee-vanpool or contact Parking and Transportation at email@example.com.
Try Going Car-Free
It’s always a great idea to have more than one way to get to Mason. Car-Free Day, on Sept. 22, is an opportunity to try a new way to commute.
Take the Car-Free pledge at carfreemetrodc.org and receive promo codes for discounts and be entered into a raffle for some great prizes. If you are a full-time employee, remember that public transportation costs and vanpool are subsidized up to the IRS limit of $270/month.
Details on the Commuter Choice Program are available at transportation.gmu.edu/commuter-choice.
