Does the institution have a carpool matching program?:

A brief description of the program:
Penn State and Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA) offer a RideShare program. This is a free ride-matching program that helps commuters find easy and economical ways to get to and from work. When one registers with RideShare, they get a list of convenient transportation options available and a RideMatch list with the names and telephone numbers of other members who live in or commute through their area. http://www.transportation.psu.edu/parking/facultystaff/rideshare.shtml Students can also participate in the ride share. AlterNetRides.com has partnered with Penn State’s Transportation Services to offer students an alternative to driving. They can find other students traveling to and from Penn State to give rides to or get rides from on weekends and/or holidays. http://www.transportation.psu.edu/parking/student/rideshare.shtml
