iHitch: Social Networking For Hitchhikers
Phil Hart has dreamed up a plan that helps car drivers pay for gas, creates a whole new mode of public transportation, and cuts down the number of cars on the road – thus lessening strain on the environment.
Nicknamed, iHitch, his idea is to create a social networking service that connects drivers to passengers who need a ride. In other words, hitchhiking. But this a friendly, safe version of hitchhiking, not the sketchy mess it’s become. Similar to Couchsurfing.com, iHitch would use a rating system to authenticate riders and drivers.
