CaptureApril's almost here, and Zimride is hosting a special sweepstakes for carpoolers during the entire month!

Make everyday Earth Day in April with UCLA's Zimride.  Not only can you help reduce your carbon footprint by sharing your ride, you can also enter to win a Kindle Fire HD and Starbucks or Amazon gift cards! During the month of April, go to and log in (or create a new account--it's fast and free) then log your daily commutes in the Commute Calendar. 

Haven't used Zimride's Commute Calendar before? Here's three easy steps:

  1. Log in to and click on your name in the top left corner. Click on Commute Calendar in the drop down box.
  2. You will be taken to your personal Commute Calendar where you will be able to drag and drop the mode of transportation you used for your commute to any date. Each date is divided into a.m. and p.m. For example if you commute in the morning riding the bus and commute home in the evening walking, you are able to input both modes into one day.
  3. Click ‘edit’ in the Commute Details section. You will then need to input your commute details to track your commute mileage with your start location and ending location. Click the ‘Save Details’ button. Your mileage will be calculated using Google Maps and will be calculated as a one way trip. When you enter both modes of transportation into a date it will calculate as a round trip.

And that's it! You'll be automatically entered to win.

Full contest rules, which include prize details, are available here.
