UCommute: Carpooling and Ride Sharing Made Easy
Promoting sustainability is a priority of the University of Saskatchewan. To help you find sustainable commute options, we are pleased to provide a dedicated ride-sharing service: UCommute. UCommute is an easy carpool and ride-share matching service directly integrated into PAWS that helps you reduce your transportation footprint and make new friends!
How Does It Work?
UCommute lets you enter your trip and find other commuters in your area.
- Want to carpool? Register as a driver or a passenger and find others who are willing to commute together!
- Want to bike? You can see a list of other cyclists in your area!
- Want to walk? Find someone nearby to walk with to campus!
- Want to take transit? Use UCommute to search for a transit buddy!
Use single-trip matching to help you find a partner to share a ride for a one-time trip. Simply enter your origin, destination, travel dates, and trip preferences, and search to see if a similar trip has already been posted by another user, and if it has, you can connect with them via email to see if you can go together.
Log and Track Your Commuting Stats
UCommute also lets you record your daily commute and get stats on fuel consuption, fincancial savings, calories burned, and greenhouse gas emissions. Regular contests will reward users who regularly post their commute on the commute calendar, so you could have a chance to win gift cards, U of S apparel, and many other cool prizes!
