Carpool and Rideshare Benefits

  • Reduce CO2 emissions: Zimride schools have demonstrated an average annualized reduction of 500,000 lbs of harmful carbon emissions.
  • Save on vehicle operating costs: Students and faculty at Zimride universities have saved over $200,000 per year in vehicle operating costs.
  • A low-cost, high-impact alternative to:
    • Constructing additional parking spaces: $4,000 – $30,000+ each
    • Building, operating and marketing your own web 2.0 rideshare solution: $100,000+

Many alternative transportation solutions (new bus lines, shuttles, etc.) require expensive research and infrastructure development. In times of tightened budgets, Zimride’s service allows you to maximize the efficiency of your current infrastructure to have a large impact at a low-cost.
