Bikes parked at ARCC’s Anoka County Campus

Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s Anoka County campus is a suburban, commuter campus. In the Greenhouse Gas Analysis that was conducted during the 2020-2021 academic year, it was determined that over half (roughly 54%) of our emissions come from commuting . Roughly 87% of ARCC commuters (students, faculty and staff) drive alone to campus in a typical year.

The Sustainability Committee is hoping to change that.


Carpooling is not only a great way to reduce emissions, but it also helps to reduce parking demand in our lots. Additionally, ARCC has preferred parking spots for carpoolers, so if you carpool you can park at the front of the lot! Click HERE to register for an ARCC Carpool Permit!

ARCC Carpool Basics:

  • All carpoolers must be students, staff or faculty at Anoka-Ramsey Community College
  • Carpoolers must carpool at least two days per week on average
  • Carpoolers need to come from the same general area or pick up carpoolers along the way
  • All carpoolers need to be at least 16 years old

Carpool Permits will be applied for through MetroTransit and issued through Anoka County Commute Solutions. Your permit must be showing on your dash in order to park in the designated carpool parking spots.
