BYU has various types of alternative transportation available on and around campus. This allows students and employees to save money and resources as they utilize these modes of transportation.
Zimride is an online ride-board. It facilitates both regular carpools and one-time rides between members of the BYU community (current students and employees). Users are able to create a profile on the BYU Zimride site including pictures, music preferences, and other things relevant to carpooling. They can search for rides posted by others, or post their own rides as either a driver or rider. Users may post a cost per seat in their vehicle and use Pay-Pal® to facilitate transactions. Users can post anonymous feedback and view comments left by other riders or drivers. To start Zimriding go to byu.zimride.com. BYU’s Zimride system is also accessible through the Students menu on the BYU homepage.
