Share the costs of commuting and parking—find a carpool buddy through TRU Rideshare, a free online app. Learn more
You can also register an additional vehicle on your long-term parking permit—whether it's economy, general, premium or reserved—so you and your carpool buddy can take turns driving if you wish. (Just make sure you transfer your permit between vehicles when you switch—and call the Parking Office if you leave it behind.) Email the Parking Office with the vehicle's licence plate and model to register.
Discount for students living outside Kamloops Transit service
If you live outside the Kamloops Transit area, and have opted out of the TRUSU UPASS, you may qualify for a 20 percent UPASS parking discount on semester and annual parking permits.
Once you’ve confirmed you are opted out of the UPASS, bring your receipt for your semester or annual parking permit to the TRU Parking Office in the Bookstore. The Parking Office will verify your UPASS status and give you the 20 percent discount for the permit you purchased. Applications for the discount on winter semester permits are due Jan. 31, 2019.
