Many you have probably considered carpooling. You should have heard of TravelSmart by now and so you know you can save lots of money, reduce emissions helping to improve both human health and environmental conditions, all while continuing to park in the same lot you park in now (or a better lot, depending on your carpool partner). Did I mention you can park for free??
So why aren’t you carpooling?
You might need help finding somebody who works on this campus, lives close to you, and works approximately the same hours.
We can help!
- It’s free
- Only people from this campus can see your post
- You will see multiple potential matches
- You aren’t required to accept any matches, and you don’t have to communicate with people you don’t want to
- You can post additional information about yourself to make your commute more enjoyable
- Music preference
- Type of car, etc.
But wait, there’s more!
If you post a ride between today, February 9th, and March 9th you will be automatically entered to win one of several prepaid Visa gift cards! All you have to do is post a ride and leave it up until at least March 9th. Zimride will randomly select new posts to win a prepaid gift card.
Don’t worry, early adopters! If you’ve already posted a ride just leave it up and you can win too. Zimride will also randomly select somebody who has already posted a ride and you can win a Med Center “Goodie Bag.”
So what are you waiting for?!? Go post a ride and see if you win some money! Then save more cash by giving carpooling a try.
