It’s common knowledge that the amount of fun on road trips is directly correlated to the number of passengers in the car playing DJ, telling tall tales, and splitting costs. Enter Ridejoy, a ride-share site where users can post offers to drive, or passengers can look for drivers headed where they need to get.
Ridejoy has about 3,000 rides posted at any given time in different cities for people looking to hit the road. Now, the community-driven site has just launched an Phone/iPad/iPod touch app. Next time wanderlust strikes, maybe you can make a new friend and reduce the cost of fuel by sharing a ride.
