Ride Share

Share the ride, share the cost, reduce the impact

Halifax SmartTrip RideShare Matching

Dalhousie students, faculty, and staff who are interested in carpooling may find someone to share a ride with by using the HRM Transportation Demand Management Ride-matching System, available through HfxRidematch.ca. This system allows commuters to quickly and safely find carpool partners.  Use your Dal e-mail to have the option to match with only members of the Dalhousie community.

RideShare parking

Dalhousie offers reserved parking spaces on all four campuses. 

On the Truro Agriculture Campus, preferential reserved spaces are offered for free to groups that qualify for the RideShare parking permit.

On the Halifax Campuses, preferential reserved spaces are offered at a shared rate to those who RideShare.

To be eligible for a RideShare parking permit, a minimum of two (2) full-time students or employees must share a ride to the University at least four (4) days each week, provided that they do not reside at the same residential address.

RideShare Participants will be issued individual RideShare Parking Permits, each bearing a registration number corresponding with their assigned reserved parking space, and they must all register their individual vehicles with Security Services.

Under the terms and conditions of the RideShare Agreement, no less than two (2) of the participants are required to be present in one (1) of the registered RideShare vehicles on, at least, four (4) days each week, when parking at the University, in order to maintain their RideShare status.

As it is anticipated that there may be some rare occasions when all RideShare participants will not be able to carpool together, due to other personal commitments, each RideShare participant will be eligible to receive a maximum of three (3) Complimentary Daily Parking Permits ($27.81 value, per person), each year (September 1 to August 31), to assist them, should they have to utilize their own personal vehicle on such occasions.
