Carpooling is a great option for students and staff to save time, money and emissions when commuting to campus. Carpool members not only share the cost of gas and vehicle expenses, but they can also avoid traffic by utilizing one of the many HOV lanes on local freeways leading to campus.

CSULB encourages carpooling to promote sustainable travel habits and to facilitate reaching our overall Climate Action Plan goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.

Special Note: In order to ensure your safety while availing the Zimride Carpool services, here is a dedicated page listing out Best Practices during COVID-19.
