Driving home for winter break or just heading to the airport? Need a ride, interested in helping a student who doesn’t have a car or looking for someone to split the cost of gas? Check out WashU’s commuter platform – WashU Rides – to search Rideboard listings, post your own, and contact potential carpool matches.
Getting started is easy; log into WashU Rides with your WUSTL key and click “View All” under the “Upcoming Rideboard Trips” section.
You can review all the current ride posts that include the departure date/time, start and end location, driver or passenger preference, and custom details about the person/trip (if they decided to add them). You can also search postings based on departure date and trips within a certain radius.
When you find a potential match, you can send them a message directly through WashU Rides to learn more and see if it’s a good match.
The more people we have using WashU Rides, the more useful it will be for everyone. Please help spread the word! Learn more at parking.wustl.edu/rides.
