UCF just launched a new carpool / ride-sharing website in conjunction with a company called Zimride. The idea is for users to post their routes and find people to ride with, thus reducing the number of cars on campus. Users who ride together can save (or even make) a little bit of money, while reducing the number of cars on campus and helping out the environment.
Even though construction of the new parking garage just started, parking is sure to be scarce again once Fall semester starts. Hopefully the new service will help to improve the parking situation on campus.
Zimride is being used at other large universities such as UCLA, West Virginia University, and the University of Michigan. You need a ucf.edu email address to sign up for the UCF-specific Zimride site. Check it out at http://zimride.ucf.edu/
