511NY Rideshare is committed to helping our community of students get around– by carpooling, taking transit, biking, or walking. Our priority is to help students find the safest and most efficient ways to get to campus!

  • Transit and transportation guidance and personalized itineraries.
  • Biking and walking safety tips and local resources.
  • One-time trips / Home for the Holidays: 511NY Rideshare can match students with a one-time trip to get home for the holidays.

Take It From Our Partners

“It’s a no-lose situation. We invite 511NY Rideshare to come to our orientations and to other on-campus events so our students can learn about the program. We encourage all of our students to join 511NY Rideshare because we want them to focus on learning, rather than worrying about how they’re going to get to campus.”
- Kathy, SUNY Farmingdale 

"511NY Rideshare offers our students free information on carpooling, transit and biking. They are a great addition to our Student Activities Fairs and Earth Day Events."
- Adam, SUNY Downstate Medical School
