When you share the ride with a friend, you'll have more time to converse, study, or even get some extra sleep. In addition, you'll be saving money, parking closer to campus than anyone else, and doing something good for the environment. See more details below.
UMass Lowell has partnered with Middlesex 3 Transportation Management Association (TMA), an affiliated organization to the Middlesex 3 Coalition. The TMA area includes: Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Chelmsford, Lowell, Tewksbury, Tyngsborough, and Westford Massachusetts.
Students, Faculty and Staff at UMass Lowell can register to become a member to utilize commuter services offered through Middlesex 3 TMA eCommuter.
The eCommuter program offers features that encourage members of the University within the Greater Boston area to pursue more sustainable transportation methods to and from work and school.
To become an eCommuter and to gain access to unique tools to upgrade your commute, members of UMass Lowell can visit the eCommuter website to fill out the registration forms. While filling out the form, in the "Member Name or Address" field, type in your workplace (UMass Lowell) and select from the results list. Once you submit the form, check your email inbox for a link to set up your password and begin exploring green commuting options.
Beginning in fall 2012, UMass Lowell was proud to introduce an on-campus carpool program. This allows individuals that carpool to have access to premium parking at reduced rates.
All participants in the carpool program will be able to park in lots commensurate to their standing at the University (Commuter, Staff or Faculty), as well as premium parking spaces on a first-come first-serve basis. These spaces are located in the following lots:
Once you have your group of two or more gathered, simply download and complete the Carpool Application (pdf). This form must be delivered to the UCAPS Office located in University Crossing, 220 Pawtucket St., Lowell along with full payment, and each person must be present with a photo ID for verification.
The carpool group will receive a single hang tag that has card access built into it. The hang tag must be prominently displayed whenever parking on campus, and used on the gate readers to raise them. Be careful not to lose the tag, as there is a $20 replacement and any tag reported lost will be flagged by Parking Enforcement for possible citation if found displayed.
