BoilerRide ready to aid carpooling, ride sharing at Purdue

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — BoilerRide, Purdue’s Web-based carpool and rideshare program, is now available for students, faculty and staff with valid Purdue career accounts.

From the BoilerRide Web site, http://www.purdue.edu/transportation/boilerride.htm, users can log in to the GreenRide application and create a profile. GreenRide suggests carpooling partners such as other faculty, staff and students who live close by or along the same commuting route and who have similar work or class schedules.

In addition to carpooling for daily commutes, GreenRide provides an event/trip matching feature that allows users to match up for one-time rides such as going to an off-campus event, sharing a ride home on weekends or traveling to the airport for school breaks.

“Carpooling offers many benefits, including saving money, which is important to everyone in today’s challenging economic environment,” said Mike Utermark, manager of Transportation Services at Purdue. “The GreenRide site provides a convenient savings calculator for carpoolers to calculate their own savings based on where they live. Carpooling also helps Purdue’s carbon footprint by decreasing the number of vehicles traveling to and from campus each day.”

Using BoilerRide involves the following steps:

  1. Go to the BoilerRide Web site at http://www.purdue.edu/transportation/boilerride.htm
  2. Click on the “Sign Up Today” link on the left side of the page.
  3. Log in with a Purdue career account and password. That will take the user to Purdue’s GreenRide application site.

Clicking on the accept button puts the entered name, Purdue University identification information, e-mail address, gender, and faculty/staff or student designation into the system.

Establishing an account profile customizes individual preferences and schedules and finds a carpool or rideshare match.
