Zimride – Carpool And Rideshare Community
Zimride makes sharing rides for drivers and passengers fun and easy. It’s a new spin on ridesharing, using social networks to enable real connections. In seconds you can set up a profile, see and book a ride in your area, or post a ride of your own. With Zimride profiles, you can view photos, music and radio preferences to ensure an enjoyable ride.
