Ever tried carpooling? Well with Ridejoy and its new iPhone app, you can find your perfect money-saving, ride-sharing match on the go, whether you’re the driver or passenger.
Ridejoy is making it easier than ever to share rides with friendly people. If you’re going on a trip, you can list extra seat space in your car, and if you need to get somewhere, you can find a ride, using Ridejoy. As a driver all you have to do is post your trip, then you start receiving massages from cool people looking for a ride. You choose the passangers and arrange the trip, earning the money for trip costs from your passengers directly via Ridejoy.
As a passenger you search through Ridejoy’s database and find the ride you need, or post a ride request and the site will automatically email you when a match is detected. Then you get a feel for your ride matches and their drivers, message the ones you like and arrange the trip. Once all the details are set you can split the ride costs with your driver directly on Ridejoy. It’s a nice service, easy to use and definitely frugal if your car is not hybrid… Try it the next time you plane a road-trip, save money and maybe gain a new friend.
