NuRide Program: Rewards for Greener Trips

NuRide is a unique program available to individuals looking to choose greener means of transportation. NuRide is a free incentive program through MassRIDES, a division of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (Mass DOT).  Participants can earn points that can be redeemed for rewards when they travel by public transportation, carpool, bike, walk, or even work from home. Please visit their web site at for more information. It's also a great way to join or start a carpool. NuRide will help you connect with other FSU students, Faculty and Staff members who live and work near you and are interested in sharing a ride.

Interested in knowing the difference you make by traveling green? NuRide also provides measurements to calculate the money you have saved, the number of drive alone trips you've reduced and your positive impact on the environment.

Get started in three easy steps:

  1. Join NuRide-sign up at using your FSU email and see the potential matches nearby. Once signed in, you can send messages securely without providing any of your personal information.
  2. Take a Greener Trip- carpool with co-workers or fellow students, hop on a bus or bike to your destination.
  3. Enjoy Rewards- Record your greener trips in your NuRide account. Once you begin to accrue points, redeem them toward restaurant coupons and discounts from local and national retailers.
