Rice participates in the NuRide carpool program. The carpool contact list is designed to help members of the Rice community find other individuals interested in carpooling. Carpools consist of two or more Rice employees or students and must be registered with the Rice ParkingOffice. One permit is given per carpool, and one proxy card is issued for each carpool member in the same lot. More specifically, faculty and staff who wish to carpool with two or more other Rice employees/students may each register for parking in the Greenbriar lot, then split the cost of a single premium lot or garage decal. Carpools must have two or more Rice employees/students and members must carpool 60% or more of the time to maintain carpool status. The carpool will receive one proximity card and a hangtag, which can then be easily switched from one car to the other. When carpool members are not carpooling and they bring their own cars to campus, they must park in the Greenbriar Lot or in a paid visitor lot.
