UI RideShare Network uses ridematching software to help university employees and students find commuting partners who also work or study at the University of Iowa. The system can also be used for single-trip matching for academic breaks or to attend events plus options for finding walking, biking, and transit buddies.

Simply register using your university Hawk ID and password and start searching. There is no obligation with registration and users can remove their profile from searches at any time or have their account deleted. The system allows students to match with other students and employees to match with other employees. Or users can also elect to make their trip profiles not visible to anyone if they only want to use the system to map routes and/or track their trips.

The university makes no representations or endorsements with regard to any individual driver or passenger and does not screen drivers or passengers or conduct background checks with regard to an individual’s driving record or criminal history. The university only provides this service to help people find others interested in ridesharing. The service is free and you make the actual arrangements. Employees and students that utilize this service to provide rides to others, do so in their individual capacities and not as agents or representatives of the university.
