California State University, Dominguez Hills has partnered with Zimride to launch a social network for ridesharing. This free and private network for CSU Dominguez Hills students, faculty and staff empowers them to join together toward creating a more sustainable community.
“We are excited about this partnership with Zimride, and the commuting opportunities it provides,” said Cynthia Jones-Hunter, CSU Dominguez Hills transportation coordinator. “Zimride’s solution is appealing to the entire campus, and will help us to reduce traffic on and around campus.”
The Zimride platform uses Facebook integration to create a fun way to find individuals within the CSU Dominguez Hills community of faculty, staff and students. Zimriders can find others with similar commuting patterns and view profiles for common networks, interests and friends before deciding to share daily commutes or even one-time rides.
Starting this semester, all students, faculty and staff can access the free CSU Dominguez Hills Zimride system at zimride.csudh.edu. To gain access to the private system, users must log in through the CSUDH Authentication Service.
This partnership marks a significant step in improving campus sustainability practices by reducing the number of cars coming to campus. Furthermore, ridesharing on daily commutes or on longer, one-time trips will help improve campus parking and substantially reduce the costs of travel for the community.
