We’re offering a rideshare service for students! Take a look at our WCCRideshare.com site and start using it to post ride offers and requests. This free matching service is in response to a student survey in favor of a carpool program.Take a look at the site, start registering your information, and as more students enter rides, you can start saving money and help the environment by sharing rides. Hundreds of students registered for the college’s first carpool program and we’re confident many of you will take advantage of this new resource, too. Find a friend who wants to share a ride, figure out the costs, and then save money and free up spaces in our busy parking lots. https://www.wccrideshare.com/
