Does the institution participate in a carpool/vanpool matching program?:

A brief description of the program:

UC Davis meets the criteria for this credit and participates in carpool and vanpool matching programs exclusively for UC Davis and for regional commuters. The matching service is provided by Zimride and by the local Transportation Management Association (Yolo TMA).

The Zimride program allows UC Davis students, staff and faculty to post one-time trips or regular commute trips to the online system to find potential carpool matches. Each individual may create an account specifying interests, musical taste and referrals from past carpool partners. Zimride also allows participants to arrange for payment through the online system once a carpool match has been made. Currently all UC Davis vanpool are also listed on Zimride to link the vanpools to potential new riders.

Additionally, UC Davis is a member of the Yolo Transportation Management Association that allows customers access to the Sacramento Region Commuter Club, an online system for commuters to find potential carpool partners outside of the University.
