Zimride at UC Merced

Zimride at UC Merced helps you connect with other campus community members to request a ride or to offer a ride wherever you're going. With Zimride at UC Merced, you can arrange a ride with only those at UC Merced or you can choose to share a ride with a broader Zimride ridesharing community.

Zimride works at the spur-of-the-moment, such as a quick trip to San Francisco, Yosemite or Modesto. You can also share a ride to the airport, Amtrak or BART station for the holidays or breaks. Use Zimride to find a UC Merced community member to carpool with on a regular basis.

To sign up, visit and register with your UC Merced NetID. Have a Facebook account? Once you're logged in, you can complete your profile by "Connecting with Facebook" (Your Facebook photo will appear on your Zimride profile, but access to your Facebook account will adhere to your Facebook privacy/access settings).
