Carpooling & Dual Parking

  • With the high price of fuel and highway congestion caused by construction along the I-45 corridor, many commuters are looking for commuting alternatives. UTMB has created a Web site that offers an easy way for commuters to find a vanpool, share a ride, or find others interested in carpooling. The site also offers links to freeway cams and road construction reports, links to vanpool information, and even local bus routes and gas prices. For details visit
  • For those that live in Galveston, the City and UTMB have partnered to create an extended transit service to meet the needs of the university's employees and students. Under the agreement, UTMB employees, students, and retirees are able to ride for free on city buses and trolleys by showing their UTMB identification cards.
  • Dual Parking – If a contract holder needs parking for more than one area on campus an email requesting dual parking will be sufficient.
  • Carpooling – If a contract holder has other employees that ride with them and will need access to their parking area; an email requesting carpooling and giving the name(s) of their carpooler(s) will be sufficient.
