"511NY Rideshare has become a household name at Suffolk County Community College. Our students and staff are familiar with the team and seek them out for answers to all questions related to transportation. [The 511NY Rideshare Team] regularly attend campus events and provide a continuous education and reminder on how to reduce our environmental impacts.

SCCC is primarily a commuter campus, where single passenger vehicles are the predominant mode of transportation, making it difficult for students who do not own or operate a car to get to and from campus. 511NY Rideshare provides students a platform to come together and share rides to campus – helping us to ease traffic, crowded parking lots and lower our GHG emissions.
