The new downtown Albany parking system makes it easier than ever for state employees to start or join a carpool. All you need is a minimum of 2 people (maximum of 4) to apply. Under the new system, there is a single carpool program. All existing carpool permits are grandfathered and will be allowed to continue parking in their current location, or can compete for a new carpool location. Current carpools are subject to the revised carpool rate structure.

Here are the steps to create a carpool for those seeking a new carpool permit or those individual permit holders looking to carpool. You must identify other State employees to carpool with (minimum of 2, maximum of 4)
- Designate a CARPOOL LEADER, generally the patron with the most time in state service.
- The CARPOOL LEADER and MEMBERS must create an Employee Parking Profile (Please remember that the LEADER and MEMBER(s) must choose the CARPOOL selection when creating the profile).
- Once the LEADER and MEMBER(s) have chosen their preferred lot (this must match), you will need to add your leader/member(s) using their N Number, First Name, and Last Name.
- Please monitor our website for our next announcement date. Carpool Permits will be issued at the same time as Individual Permits. All carpool leaders/members should monitor their email for a Carpool Offer.
