Carsharing opportunities

To: UCSC Community

From: Larry Pageler, Director of Transportation and Parking Services

UCSC subscribes to Zimride, a campus-specific ride-matching service. Zimride helps you offer or request rides for regular commutes or one-time road trips (such as getting to local airports, or getting home for Thanksgiving). If you have a car, you can split your costs by offering rides. If you don’t have a car, you can request a ride by posting your travel information. You can save hundreds of dollars a month sharing your ride and help UCSC take a significant step in reducing our carbon footprint.

The cost of the service is free to all UCSC students, staff, and faculty. Your ride offers and ride requests are only shared within UCSC's Zimride Rideshare Community. You can register at by using your campus email address. 

For the month of November, those who post rides in the UCSC Zimride network will be automatically entered in the 2015 "Zimsgiving" Sweepstakes. Winners will receive a MasterCard gift card ranging in value from $50 to $200.
