Find Cougar Carpool Matches with the new Carpool Bulletin board or RideMatcher

Welcome back Cougars!  This semester save money on parking and gas by carpooling to campus.

There are two ways to find a carpool match

1 - Use the new Carpool Bulletin Board located in the USU commuter lounge

2 - Cal State San Marcos has teamed up with SANDAG's iCommute program to bring RideMatcher to CSUSM.  RideMatcher is an online tool to help find fellow student carpoolers in your home area with similar class schedules, use your campus e-mail to keep the search to just the campus community.
