Rideshare Rewards Program

Update (5/1/2021): Due to primarily remote instruction and telecommuting, the Rideshare Rewards drawings have been temporarily suspended.

The Rideshare Rewards program was designed to show appreciation to students and employees who use sustainable transportation modes to commute to campus. Participants log their green commutes on Zimride. Each month, four Rewards Members will be randomly selected to win $50 in Beach Buck credit that may be used at any of these participating locations.

Join the Rideshare Rewards program today and help fight climate change one ride at a time! We are grateful for your partnership in striving for our goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.
