Parking space on our campus is very limited and so we encourage both students and staff to consider participating in one of the two following carpooling options:
Informal Carpooling: Allows for a driver and one or more passengers to register via Omnivox so that students and staff with suitable schedules can travel together in the same vehicle to and from the College. The carpooling module is accessible on My JAC Portal, under My Omnivox Services.
Formal Carpooling: If you are interested in applying for one of the formal Carpooling hang tag passes, please register your carpooling group up to the registration deadline of June 29 at 12:00 p.m. A lottery will be held the afternoon of June 29 and the formal carpooling winning teams will be drawn and sent an MIO message informing them that they have been selected and the primary contact will be able to register and pay for the carpooling hangtag using the Omnivox system.
Offering a ride will not only reduce your costs,
it will also help diminish your carbon footprint.
