USC has launched Zimride, http://zimride.usc.edu, our private social network for ridesharing.

Zimride is a simple way to find friends, classmates and co-workers who are going the same way you are. Combining social networks and a proprietary route-matching algorithm, Zimride makes it easy to share the seats in your car or catch a ride.

It’s simple. Have a car? Split the costs by driving fellow USC community members. Don’t have a car? Find a ride where you need to go. You save money, protect the environment and get access to priority carpool parking when you share your ride.

Membership is free and easy. All USC students, staff, and faculty are eligible to sign-up for our private Zimride Rideshare Community with their campus email address here:
