The Center for the Sustainable Environment, in partnership with RideBuzz, has created a rideshare website for the F&M community. We hope that you will take this opportunity to carpool (and save a little carbon from entering the atmosphere!) during the upcoming holidays (or at any other time). On the site, you can find a ride or share a ride. Doing so will save fuel and parking costs and limit greenhouse gas emissions.
Faculty and staff may also use the site to organize commuter rideshares.
The site is limited to members with F&M email addresses. Even so, please use good judgment when using the rideshare board.
To use the site:
1. Register @ www.ridebuzz.org/user/register using your email address @fandm.edu
2. Check your e-mail and follow the confirmation link
3. Within the F&M site, post rides offered or needed
Your College Rides will list here:
www.ridebuzz.org/franklinandmarshallcollege (must be logged in to view)
It's that easy!
