Wright State’s Zimride Social Network for Ridesharing
Wright State Zimride is a new, fun and easy way to coordinate your daily commute with friends, classmates and colleagues or to share rides out of town. Zimride is our private network that makes it easy to share the empty seats in your car or catch a ride with other Wright State faculty, staff, and students.
Zimride uses Facebook integration to make it easy for you to find a friend or fellow Wright State classmate or colleague and carpool.
See who’s already using it!
It is simple. Have a car? Add your ride offer and split the costs, especially gas, by driving with friends, fellow students or colleagues. Need a ride? Add your request, find a ride, and get where you want to go. Just register for a free account and post where you are coming from and when.
Wright State Zimride will help you find others making similar trips.
Many people have flexible schedules. With Zimride, you can even find someone for occasional carpool. Add your ride today and start saving.
Join other Wright State students and colleagues in making a more sustainable, social and fun form of transportation for our community by helping build the Wright State Zimride community.

Land & Freedom: Talking Food Systems
Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh food projects in San Diego's diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with residents that are taking advantage of the city's reformed urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low income communities. Residents are eating healthier with produce they've grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.
Brian Myers, a video producer with the Media Arts Center San Diego, works with under-served communities to document the voice of local community members for the Speak City Heights multimedia collaborative. As a media justice activist he works on a variety of independent media projects for community groups, such as May Day Workers Film Festival, and other organizations focused on social justice.
