About Zimride

What is Zimride by Enterprise?

  • Zimride by Enterprise is an online ride-matching service that easily connects drivers and passengers heading to the same area, making it a great solution for those who don’t have cars on campus to find rides for weekend trips or going home to visit on breaks or for those who have cars to share travel costs. Zimride users can also use it to form carpools with other students, faculty or staff who are looking to share rides back and forth to campus.

How do I edit a ride?

  • Click on your “dashboard” and find the ride you would like to edit. Below the ride listing, you will find an “edit ride” link. Please make sure you communicate any changes with your booked passengers. If you change your ride after bookings are accepted, passengers have the right to cancel their booking and receive a full refund.
  • Anytime you edit a ride verify that all information is still correct before saving your changes.

How do I cancel a ride?

  • Ride with no bookings: If a ride has no bookings you can cancel your ride by going to your Zimride dashboard and find the ride you’d like to cancel. Below the listing you will find a “deactivate” link that you can click to cancel the ride. You cannot deactivate a ride with an active booking request; you must cancel the passenger’s booking first before you deactivate your ride.
  • Active ride bookings: We take driver cancellations very seriously and strongly discourage you from canceling rides as this causes a big inconvenience to passengers. However, if you must cancel a ride, go to your Zimride inbox and select the conversation with your passenger. Under booking status, click “Cancel Request.” After completing the cancel ride booking form the booking will be cancelled and your passenger will receive a full refund if the ride was booked with a credit or debit card. After all passengers have been removed, go to your Zimride dashboard and find the ride you would like to cancel and click the “deactivate” link.
  • Cancellations & Refunds: Passengers must cancel a ride 24 hours prior to the day before the departure date to be eligible for a refund. For example if a trip departs on Friday at 4pm, you must cancel prior to 11:59pm on Wednesday night.

How do I get paid?

  • To be able to receive payment from a ride booked with a credit or debit card the driver must have a PayPal account. Your PayPal account must be registered AND verified in order to receive your payments. If you have any questions or issues with setting up and verifying your PayPal account, please contact PayPal.
