UCLA Carpool Matching Service


Whether you are a student, faculty or staff member, carpooling can save you time and money. You save time when you carpool and use high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes and you save money by sharing the cost of gas and other car-related expenses.

To form a regular carpool or find one-time rides, use Zimride, our UCLA carpool matching service. Register for free with your @ucla.edu email address and enter your starting point, destination and commuting preferences. Zimride will send you a list of potential UCLA carpool partners to begin communicating with via email. When you form a carpool or join an existing one, you can extend your savings even further by applying together for a reduced-fee UCLA carpool parking permit.

Make new friends, save time and money and get more smiles-per-gallon!
