Welcome to Revise Your Ride

**SPRING 2021 -- RYR commuter benefits continue to be available for employees with department approval to work on campus and enrolled in the COVID testing program. To be considered eligible for the Spring bike/walk and carpool/vanpool incentives, to be paid out in July, participants must be working an average of 2+ days per week on campus and carpools/vanpools must have TPS approval due to increased close contact risks.

For more information on car/vanpool approval during this time or any other questions regarding the RYR commuter benefits, please contact TPS at commute@princeton.edu.**

Local Movement, Global Impact

Revise Your Ride, an important element of the University’s strategic priorities, has been designed to reduce single occupancy vehicles (SOV’s) on campus. The University is at a crossroads – achievement of our top strategic priorities is in direct conflict with our driving culture. Parking logistics are an impediment to the fulfillment of the University Mission, in terms of land use, finances, and sustainability. In order to ease this obstacle, we are seeking to reduce the number of SOV’s on campus.

In order to encourage employees to leave their cars at home, we have developed Revise Your Ride.  This program offers enhanced benefits and incentives to participate in one of five commuter programs in lieu of a parking permit: bike/walk, carpool, vanpool, transit reimbursement, or NJ Transit bus pass.

We encourage you to review the options below to determine which works best for you.


For those living near campus, biking and/or walking to campus is a convenient, easy and environmentally sustainable way to commute. Faculty and staff who enroll in this program will receive a $400 annual incentive.

Princeton University faculty, staff and students who commute to campus via rail transit are eligible to receive a 50% subsidy of the monthly transit pass. Participants in the program must be full-time, benefits-eligible employees or graduate students.

Monthly NJ TRANSIT bus pass for faculty, staff and students. Participants of the program must be full-time, benefits-eligible employees or graduate students.

Princeton University employees may find carpooling a convenient commute option. Each member of the carpool will receive a $400 annual incentive. Premium parking assignments are available in some campus lots and the garages.

Princeton University employees who opt to participate in the vanpool program receive a $200 annual incentive and the exclusive use of a University-funded van. Premium parking assignments are available in some campus lots and the garages. A minimum of five commuters are required to form a vanpool.
