Based on feedback from customers, Zimride has added a new feature to their profiles called “responsiveness scores.” Now you can make your carpool matches more quickly and more smoothly!

Under each Zimrider’s photo you’ll see a small arrow followed by a reply rate percentage and a small clock symbol followed by average reply time.

These numbers will give you an idea of how active the user is on Zimride and how soon you might receive a response from that driver. If you’re looking to book a ride that begins relatively soon, the responsiveness scores could help you narrow down your pool of possible ride matches.

Your own profile will also feature repsonsiveness scores. According to Zimride, though, the scoring system starts everyone on a clean slate. If you haven’t been the most punctual Zimrider so far, your score won’t be affected. So get riding!
