Hitch-A-Ride - Rideshare with Friends!
By Hitch A Ride Pty Ltd
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Hitch-A-Ride is a realtime ridesharing platform which enables people to connect and travel together. It uses Facebook to connect with Friends, or Friends-of-Friends to either Hitch or Drive within your area.
No more getting in a car with strangers, and no legal grey areas. Hitch-A-Ride focuses and making real social connections, reducing transport costs and saving the environment.
• Save time and money – no more taxi drivers taking the longest route to stretch out the fare or wasting time on public transport
• Drivers can earn extra money on a route they’d be taking anyway or even turn Hitch-A-Ride trips into a part time second job
• Terms are negotiated directly between drivers and passengers – some charge a flat fee, others just want you to bring the coffee or split the parking costs with them
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“My work hours make it really hard to get public transport and I can’t afford a taxi every day. Using Hitch-A-Ride I was able to link up with someone who works at the warehouse next door and get a lift to and from work for about a third of what I used to have to pay” – Liam Mullins
“One of my Facebook friends and I were both driving pretty much the same route and paying city parking fees every day; now we share the commute and some long overdue catch up time!” – Indiana Packard
“I don’t like the idea of getting in a car with a stranger, so it’s great that Hitch A Ride lets you communicate with the other person before accepting the lift. It gives me peace of mind” – Rosie O’May
NOTE: Hitch-A-Ride is designed to be used with friends (not strangers) - for that reason you must use your Facebook login so you can connect and share rides with your friends. Also, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
