Tips for Carpooling

You don't have to carpool every day. Start small and agree to parameters with your partner. Learn more about successful carpooling. 

EV parking

Parking at the Morningside Heights and Manhattanville campuses is a scarce resource. Learn about residential, commuter, and daily parking options and eligibility requirements. Before you look for parking, ensure you’re aware of the multiple car-free, cost-competitive, and sustainable travel options available to you.
