Income Tax Impact: Parking fees for employees may be paid with pre-tax dollars, which may generate savings of up to 24% over the above annual fees, depending on the permit holder’s overall tax situation. For example, the base rate fee charge is $178, but if pre-tax income is reduced by 20%, the resulting cost for annual parking is $142.40.

Subsidized shared rides – What is Included?

First of all, this program will not start until later in August. One of the features of the Transportation Demand Management program will be the implementation of subsidized shared-rides using the Lyft ride-hailing service. You can use your existing Lyft account. No special account is required.

Shared rides that start at or end at Saint Mary’s College and are within a 6.5 mile radius that includes the Orinda, Lafayette and Walnut Creek BART stations, will be subsidized for the first $15 of the ride. The user will be responsible for costs exceeding $15, and the “shared ride” feature must be selected. Each account will be limited to 50 rides per month.  Students and Employees will receive an introductory email from Saint Mary's and Lyft to enroll in the program.  The Lyft program will begin this year on August 19 and will not include days when the College is closed (e.g. Winter Break).  We will be monitoring data from Lyft to evaluate use patterns and opportunities for refinement.

Although any member of the Saint Mary’s community can use the Lyft program, the program is intended for the use of people who do not bring a car to campus. It should provide people with an alternative to commuting to campus via personal automobile.  In the first months of the program, we will be evaluating the use data to identify whether the Lyft program is operating as intended and we will assess the program with the Parking Advisory Group (representatives of students, faculty and staff) to make modifications based on that use.  The Lyft program cannot be used to move about within the campus boundary.

Lyft pays for carbon-offset credits as part of this program, to reduce the overall environmental impact of our transportation to/from campus.
