Carpool Matching Services Offered

UMass offers a rideshare service available free to all Five College employees and off-campus students. The program matches riders with similar schedules and routes. To learn more or sign up, go to and look for the listing of carpool and rideshare programs. MassRIDES, a service of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), also offers a NuRide program to find people going your way and at the same time earn reward points each time you take a ‘green trip’ (like transit, bicycling, walking, or carpooling). Then, redeem those points for rewards like local and national restaurant coupons, retailer discounts and tickets to shows and attractions. To sign up, go to Carpoolers, opt-outers, bicyclists and PVTA riders can also take advantage of MassRIDES Emergency Ride Home (ERH) Program.
