Preferred parking permits
Capitol Rideshare is pleased to offer a preferential Rideshare parking permit to all state employees in Maricopa County who carpool three or more days per week. This permit allows parking in reserved Rideshare spaces on the days that you carpool. If you and a friend (state employee or non-state employee) would like to obtain a permit, please complete the application. Each section must have information about the carpooler. If you have more than two in your carpool, please complete an application for each member. Only one permit is issued per carpool, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Ride matching services
For employees who are interested in carpooling but don’t have a carpool partner, Valley Metro offers an online carpool ride matching service: www.sharetheride.com. Once you have been matched with a carpool partner, be sure to apply for your preferred parking permit.
Remember, your carpool parking permit qualifies you for FREE Commuter Club membership! Benefits include a free ride home, twice each year, just in case your carpool partner must leave unexpectedly. Be sure to explore all of the benefits offered through Commuter Club.
During the months of May and June, Capitol Rideshare conducts the annual renewal process for Commuter Club members and Rideshare parking permit holders. Regardless of when you received your permit or became a member, everyone must renew by June 30 for the next state fiscal year.
