MCDOT Division of Parking does not manage the carpool program. We just sell the permits and sign the spaces based on the number of permits sold.

Carpool permits are lot/garage specific and parkers may use either

  • Designated Reserve Carpool spaces, or
  • If there are no spaces available in the reserved carpool area, vehicles are authorized to park in long term metered or non-restricted spaces within the designated facility.

Carpool permits vary in cost depending upon the number of persons or passengers per vehicle.
