Human Resources Rideshare Incentives

The Human Resources Department offers three Rideshare programs aimed at saving you money AND reducing your carbon footprint. Whether you are looking for a carpooling group or public transportation options, or maybe you plan on going car-free, Chapman wants to reward you for it.

Carpools: This program is offered to full-time Chapman faculty, staff, and commuter students. Get together with other members of the Chapman community and start a carpool! Limiting the number of single passengers trips you take is a great way to reduce your own carbon footprint. Plus, carpooling is a great way to save money, make some new friends, and be guaranteed a sweet parking space!

Public Transit: Both full- and part-time faculty, staff and commuter students are eligible to participate in the following two programs.

  • Chapman U-Pass Plan for OCTA Bus Riders: Receive a discount to use Orange's public transportation.
  • Metrolink Corporate Pass Program: Get passes for the Metrolink at a discounted rate.

Zipcar: Chapman students, faculty and staff are eligible at a special discounted rate. Zipcar offers a variety of cars that can be rented by the hour, for those who need a car for short trips and errands. Chapman University has 4 Zipcars on campus! Gas, insurance and up to 180 miles per day are included in the cost of renting the Zipcar. Zipcar's websitecontains extensive details and easy-to-follow instructions.
