Give yourself a raise! Take money out of your gas tank and put it back into your pocket. Post your daily commute or trip and find others who are going the same way. Share the costs. Share the Ride!
Using Zimride can help take the stress out of finding a ride home for a weekend to visit the parents or just get away for a few days. Post a ride or find a ride and find other AU students going the same way.
Students, faculty and staff can set up their own carpools to fit their commuting needs by posting a ride on Zimride. This is a great opportunity to split the cost of travel to and from American University. Save through splitting the costs of a parking permit, gas, tolls and car maintenance.
Zimride is a fun and easy way to share the seats in your car or catch a ride. With Zimride, you can find AU friends, classmates, and coworkers going the same way you are.
AU Zimride requires an @student.american.edu or @american.edu email address. You can also sign in using your Facebook account if you are part of the AU network.
AU provides faculty and staff members who regularly carpool, vanpool, bike, walk, or take public transit to work with a reliable ride home when one of life's unexpected emergencies arises. Please view our website for full details.
"I used Zimride my sophomore year and I can't just say that it was a great experience because that would be an understatement. It was simply phenomenal. Not because I was riding a helicopter or a tremendously expensive car, but because my peer was a wonderful person. Above the financial benefit of Zimride, there's a social benefit to it. By using Zimride, I met Shoshanna who is now like a sister to me."
