Carpooling: Go Green and Save Some $Green$

Raise your hand if you want to save some $money$! In today's world, we are all looking for ways to save money and the environment. Why not do both at the same time? If you're like many UACCM students and employees, you probably make a daily trek to UACCM from Conway, Russellville, or other surrounding towns (some even come all the way from Little Rock!) A great way to save money, save the environment, make some new friends, and have some fun is to carpool to/from UACCM. We've been trying to find a way to make setting up and managing a carpool system easy (and FREE), and think we may have found it.

Try it out by going to www.zimride.com and scrolling down to select "Arkansas" from the state listing. Then, select "Morrilton" from the next page. From there, you will be able to see current ride offers/requests to and from Morrilton and the surrounding areas. If an available ride looks like it will work with your schedule, click on it to see more information and contact the user who posted it. If nothing looks like it will work for you, click "Add Ride" to enter and submit a little information, and Facebook users can sign in using Facebook Connect. This will add your carpool information to your Facebook profile so all your friends can see and will also allow you to manage your rides through Facebook. Hopefully, use of the service will grown from there and we will all be on our way to saving money and the environment.

You can also search "Carpool" on Facebook and select the first app you see to get started. If the service works well, UACCM may be able to integrate the service more closely with our Facebook Page and college Web site in the future. Try it out and let us know what you think!
