Duke University launches a new rideshare and commuter network just for students and employees.
Alternative transportation on college campuses is a growing need and Duke University is the latest school to bring RidePost to campus. The new site gives students, faculty and staff members their own private ridesharing network: Duke.RidePost.com.
RidePost is the new standard for transportation on college and university campuses and Duke University joins a growing number of schools choosing to become leaders in alternative transportation on campus while offering low cost options for students and employees to carpool.
Exclusive to verified students, faculty, and staff – Duke now has a private ridesharing and carpooling network to meet the specific transportation needs of the campus community.
But this isn’t your old school hitch hiking, this is RidePost. Safety is key and on top of many other safety measures it requires a verified and current @Duke.edu email address to join. In addition, members can connect their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles to increase transparency as well as see any mutual connections with others.
RidePost is working with Duke’s Parking and Transportation Services to not only reduce the costs of transportation, but to lower congestion and reduce the need for cars on campus. You can learn more about this in the Duke Today article.
