Picking travel partners just got automated.

Northern Arizona University faculty, staff and students will enjoy enhanced mobility and carpool opportunities through a new partnership with Zimride, a social network for ridesharing.

Zimride users log on and share seats in their car or find a ride to their destination. The private system allows NAU faculty, staff and students to post their plans and search for others with similar commutes or destinations. Users can view others’ profiles to identify common networks, interest and friends before deciding to share a ride. Zimride also allows users to connect their personal Facebook profile.

Register for free by visiting zimride.com/nau. An NAU user ID is required to access the private system.
