  • Green My Commute

     At Yeshiva University, 4% of our carbon emissions comes from commuting. With the average American driving 12,000 miles a year, we need to do something about it!

     CARPOOLING

    Carpooling is good for the environment, and it can drastically decrease your commuting and parking costs. By sharing your ride, you will better your community, the environment and your pocketbook. Yeshiva is working with 511 Rideshare, a carpooling matching service, designed to assist you in finding other carpoolers in the area. Please check back soon to see how you can be saving money and the environment!

     

    In April 2011, the Office of Energy & Sustainability and the Security Department introduced a new carpooling program for current participants of the Wilf campus's parking program. Those interested in sharing a parking permit with a fellow Yeshiva employee are able to divide the monthly parking fee evenly between participants, with a maximum of four riders per vehicle. By sharing a ride, not only will you save money on the permit but you will save on gasoline, tolls and ultimately your lungs by helping make New York City a cleaner city to live and work in. If you already have a group you wish to carpool with, send an email to parking@yu.edu with names, email addresses and YU phone numbers where participants can be contacted.
