Citizens for Modern Transit (CMT) launches Zimride by Enterpise this month, a service of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, in the St. Louis area. Zimride is a free online ride-matching service that connects riders and passengers with similar commutes. The program aims to connect like-minded commuters to extend transit trips and close the gaps that may exist between transit stations and their point of origin or destination. Zimride has the ability to create more efficient commutes for individuals with less-than-simple routes to work.

Zimride also allows individuals to ride-match to get to shopping establishments, entertainment venues, and other destinations that aren’t easily accessible by transit alone. The program is a sustainable alternative to driving places individually, helping reduce vehicle emissions, traffic congestion and fuel consumption. The website even offers a secure way to split gas costs evenly between commuters.

Zimride is the largest web-based ride-sharing and carpooling network in North America. If you are interested in learning more about this program coming to St. Louis, click here.
