UConn Launches A New Ride-Matching Service

UConn is excited to introduce a new partnership with Zimride by Enterprise, a service of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, as an alternative transportation option on campus.

Zimride is an online ride-matching service connecting drivers and passengers within a private UConn network heading to the same area. It is free for students and faculty/staff to join the network and begin searching for matches or posting rides of their own.

Zimride provides an easy way to run errands, take weekend trips or go home to visit on breaks by sharing a ride with another student. Students share the expense of the trip, and also reduce traffic, air pollution and parking congestion by riding together.

Students, Faculty and staff members can save time, money and stress on their daily commute to campus by using Zimride to form a carpool. The innovative search feature allows users to post their commute, including arrival and departure times, to find matches in the network.

Here’s how it works:

The UConn network is available only to students, faculty and staff. Members of the campus community interested in using Zimride must have a UConn NetID to sign up.
In just a few seconds on, drivers and passengers can set up a profile, search for open seats, or post their ride and destination safely and securely.
