How does the SFZC rideshare board work?
Please click on the "Sign Up!" button to set up a personal account. You must provide a valid email address. You will be asked to enter the location of your "Trip Origin" (where you live or where you wish to meet your carpool). After you confirm your email account, you will be able to view your matches and contact the other riders/drivers in the SFZC community by phone or email. Possible carpool matches also will be emailed to you periodically. If you do not wish to reveal your street address when you enter a carpool request, merely enter your street name or neighborhood.
How easy is the rideshare board to use?
Once you have created your account, you are free to search the site for other commuters who want to carpool. You may search for those who live close to you, who have similar schedules, or who have similar driving preferences. If you are interested in carpooling with someone, simply click the provided link to send them an email, or call them if they provide a phone number. From there you are free to make arrangements that suit you both. The site also includes advanced features to search for carpools and to display the matches on a map, as you wish.
How do I know my privacy is being protected?
All of the information that you enter here is meant solely for the purpose of rides. Your private information and email address will not be used for any other purposes.
