How often is it that you actually share rides with your friends? RideConnect opens up new possibilities in ridesharing.
With RideConnect, you can do more things with like minded people than to sit idly in traffic in an empty car with a driver you don't know.
What is RideConnect?
RideConnect is a smartphone app with which you can create private communities from your social contacts. You can then share rides with people in those communities.
The following 5 steps will quickly make RideConnect useful for you and your friends.
