Getting Home for the Holidays

The holidays are here and it has been a busy long weekend of friends, family, and food! I know some students come to the University of Minnesota from far distances and I thought I'd share some tips on getting home from college for the holidays or just a weekend.

The U of M has a service called Zimride, which is a ride-sharing service for U of M students. To the right is a map from the Zimride website showing the different rides and destinations available. I personally haven't used it because I grew up close to the U of M and usually can be picked up, or I hear of rides by word of mouth (another common way to get rides home). But if you're struggling to find a ride, or you're driving and want some people to pitch in for gas, it's a great service to check out!

I also know of some people who use the Megabus to get back home. If you haven't heard of it, it's a bus system that goes to many different destinations and tickets can be secured for very good prices. So be sure to check that one out, too.

Hopefully these tips can help people planning their rides back home for winter break. Only a couple more weeks!
