Find carpool partners to start saving

Save on gas and parking at UNC! Find carpool partners at UNC.ShareTheRideNC.org or Zimride.UNC.edu. Both websites are free and secure. You have the option to only match to UNC affiliates or to match with others. We always recommend meeting first in a public space (like a coffee shop) before starting the carpool. This way, you can hash out the details while getting to know the person. You may even meet your new best friend!

Bike

Be seen in the spring

The arrival of spring means more hours of sunlight, but does not ensure that cyclists can be seen. Make sure to wear light, reflective clothing when riding at night and use bike lights. Don’t have a light? Come by the Public Safety Building during business hours to pick up a free bike light.
