FAQ: Carpool Emergency Ride

Q: I’m considering carpooling, but am uncomfortable not having a means to get somewhere if an emergency arises. Does Wake Forest offer an emergency ride service?

A: Yes. In the case of a personal or family emergency, the Transportation and Parking Office will reimburse a carpool member for cab fare upon submission of a valid receipt. In the case of scheduled appointments or other driving needs during the workday, carpool members are encouraged to maintain a membership in Zipcar. Any of the five vehicles in the WFU shared fleet can be reserved and used as needed at a low hourly rate that includes gas and insurance.
