Car Pool/Ride Share Program

Posted by Eve Esch on Jul 16, 2018 10:39 am

Hi folks - We are looking for some examples of car pool/ride share programs that other universities have in place.
It certainly seems to be one of the "win-win" scenarios, in that it's better for the environment and it saves people gas/parking $$.
If you could share your link for your program and offer any commentary (how popular it is, any concerns with it, how it's marketed, etc), we'd greatly appreciate it!
Thanks,

We have a few different efforts going on at UW-Platteville.  Our campus Sustainability Department has a link to a ride sharing program they are using called Zimride. I do not know how popular this is with students and how often it is used.  https://www.uwplatt.edu/sustainability/transportation

Although not an electronic method, we at the Student Center are still using a physical ride board.  Admissions tour guides talk about it to perspective students.  Slips are getting filled out on a regular basis so we continue to offer it.   (see pics below)
