A new carpool parking zone will be opening at Clarkson GO on Monday, May 14th.
To get a carpool permit, you and your carpool partners must create Carpool Zone accounts at www.CarpoolZone.ca and form a carpool through the online system. Then complete a carpool parking permit application form. (.pdf)
If you’re already sharing a ride to your GO station, you can still apply for a carpool parking permit. You and your carpool partners must create Carpool Zone accounts at www.CarpoolZone.ca and form a carpool. Then submit your carpool parking permit application form. (.pdf)
Often, demand for parking spaces at many GO stations exceeds supply. While GO continues to expand parking at some stations, many stations have little or no room for expansion.
The carpool zone does not reduce the number of parking spaces at Clarkson, but allows more GO passengers to access the station with the same number of spaces. Anyone can use the spaces after 9 a.m. By encouraging people to share rides, GO hopes to decrease the number of cars traveling to its lots and increase the available parking for those who can’t carpool.
The station will have at least 10 spaces for carpoolers, although GO may add more, if enough people decide to use the carpool priority spaces.
GO launched a pilot carpool parking-priority project last August at Burlington, East Gwillimbury, Oakville and Whitby GO Stations.
