I am a Professor at UCI, but live in Studio City. I drive and take the metro link, and am now experimenting to see if there are other individuals with whom a ride share would work. I can drive, but prefer not to (we have a diesel truck that is safe but not nice to the environment). I live on the Redline metro, so could ride share with anyone along red line in LA, or metro link from Union Station to Irvine. Let me know if it may work for you and we can chat it through, or try for a month.
