Commute Survey Results
Faculty typically travel 17 miles one-way, while the number drops for staff and students (13 and 14 miles, respectively).
In total, about 8,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions are due to our campus commutes. Cars coming to and from campus use roughly 912,000 gallons of gas each year!
The good news: Zimride should allow our campus community to find carpools near them, with people they can trust.
Zimride Your Ride
Students, faculty, and staff can sign up for Zimride using their @scu.edu email address. Users have the option to link their new accounts with Facebook after registration. To use Zimride, users can login at http://www.zimride.scu.edu or through their Facebook accounts to post and search for ridesharing opportunities and use Paypal to help pay for gas money as a passenger. The program will also work in conjunction with the already existing Zipcar service by allow students to split traveling costs.
Millie Kenney, Service manager of the Parking and Transportation Office and Interim Service Manager of Campus Safety is heading the program at Santa Clara. Kenney hopes that the launch of Zimride in November will encourage students heading home for the holidays to use Zimride to carpool home.
