How Zimride works.
The UW Oshkosh Zimride community (http://zimride.uwosh.edu) is our social network for ridesharing.
Zimride is a simple way to find friends, classmates and co-workers who are going the same way you are, making it easy for you to share the seats in your car or catch a ride.
It's simple. Have a car? Split the costs by driving fellow UW Oshkosh community members. Don't have a car? Find a ride where you need to go. You save money, protect the environment and have more fun when you ride.
For information about the Zimride program please contact Brandon Heise, Reeve Union Technical Services Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please read How to travel safely using UW Oshkosh Zimride for safety and etiquette quidelines so you can share your ride safely and happily.

Testimonials from UW Oshkosh Students
"I loved my zimride experience. I usually drive home alone, and have a hard time paying for the gas. There were a lot of people who wanted a ride close to where I was going, and they were all willing to pitch in for gas!"
"I think Zimride is so great for students, both passengers and drivers. Drivers can make extra cash by just driving home the way they would be anyways and passengers save themselves a trip and save on gas money. I made a new friend who I would have never met had I not used Zimride for my last ride home over the weekend. I recommend Zimride to anyone I know looking for a ride home."
"Zimride was super easy to use and matched me up right away with dozens of potential rides. I've met some awesome new people around campus while reducing my carbon footprint all at the same time! The best part is that it's safe; only people from my campus network can see my information. I've been recommending Zimride to everyone I know!"
"On the ride home on Sunday, as we were leaving Eau Claire, we drove by Heckel's restaurant. In front of the restaurant we saw this great cow wearing a cheesehead and we had to get a picture. As we drove home to Oshkosh, we listened to the Packer game in the car! Using Zimride is a great way to make friends and save the environment!!"
