USF Parking and Transportation Services (PATS) seeks to improve the parking experience for students, staff, and faculty on the Tampa Campus. Carpooling to campus reduces traffic congestion, makes more parking spaces available, saves fuel, money and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The RideFlag app can confirm the number of people in your car and can deliver to you through your mobile phone an instant digital daily preferred carpool parking permit upon arriving to campus. By testing the accuracy and reliability of the RideFlag app with volunteer carpool testers, PATS is one step closer to improving the parking experience on the Tampa Campus.
If you already drive in a carpool to the USF Tampa Campus or if you drive alone to campus but also want to help us test the app, you can find a friend to be a passenger in your car for the test. Please sign up here. A carpool includes the driver and one or more other passengers.
Once you submit this completed form, you will be emailed instructions for how to download and use the RideFlag app, a location map of all preferred carpool parking spaces on campus, and a Frequently Asked Questions sheet providing more detail how this test works.
