Zimride

Zimride is a rideshare program in the U.S. that connects inter-city drivers and passengers through social networking.

Zimride, sold by Lyft to Enterprise in July 2013, was founded in 2007 to connect users for long-haul rides and car pooling for universities and businesses.

The service made the vast majority of its money from SaaS-based ride-matching software that was run privately through individual schools and companies. The company had more than 130 university and corporate campuses signed up to offer ride-sharing and car pooling through Zimride.

Founders:  John Zimmer, Logan Green, Marcus Cohn, Matt Van Horn, Rajat Suri
