Welcome to Revise Your Ride

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, both in terms of land use and finances. In order to ease this obstacle, we are seeking to reduce the number of SOV’s on campus over the next few years before the introduction of a fee-based parking program in the fall of 2020.

In order to encourage employees to leave their cars at home, we have developed Revise Your Ride.  This pilot program offers enhanced incentives to participate in one of the five TDM programs: bike/walk, carpool, vanpool, rail reimbursement, and free NJ Transit bus pass.

TPS has developed a comprehensive program offering a range of benefits and incentives to commuters who choose an alternative commute option in lieu of a parking permit. 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.

Participants in the program must be full-time, benefits-eligible employees or graduate students. New campus shuttle service to and from Princeton Junction route during peak commute hours; 8:00 – 10:00 am and 4:00-6:00pm. Note: participants must display a current Princeton University ID to board the bus.
