I do not understand why you want to restrict the access. Carpooling is
the action to share it's own car with someone else for a journey. To
meet the other people you have to left your car somewhere, and this is
often on a parking. It's a little bit new to do carpooling and here in
France there's some parking not dedicated ti carpooling but designated
to carpooling welcome ! So the access is not restrcited and you can park
on it even if you do not do carpooling.

Hope this is clear
