Vanpool

Let Someone Else Do the Driving

Check out these UNC vanpools to see if one matches your commute. Vanpool riders get to sleep, read, or just sit back and relax during their commute. Compare that to driving alone every day. Try it once, and you'll never want to leave!

 

Carpool

ShareTheRideNC

Quickly and securely find carpools! Using your home and work addresses, you will be matched to nearby commuters with similar schedules (home addresses are never shared). When you receive your list of matches, you choose who to contact. There are no obligations or requirements. Learn more at UNC.ShareTheRideNC.org.

Zimride

Don’t forget Zimride over the summer! Using Zimride to plan your next trip can save you money by sharing the ride. Wherever you need to go, Zimride is there: zimride.unc.edu.
