What are people saying about Zimride?

"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."
