Hitch a Ride is an application which helps you get to places you want to go using everyone’s favorite social media sites.

With the help of a mini map system, the route of where you are destined can be posted to Facebook (to your own wall or a friend’s wall) or Twitter. This opens up hundreds of possibilities for safe transport amongst your social media friends to where you want to go

With options for TIME and a TIP/BRIBE you can let all of your friends know what time you want to leave and how much your willing to pay for a ride to your destination.

So why not try using Hitch a Ride to get you somewhere without having to rely on public transport or parking or spending your hard earned cash on fuel and general car expenses.

Why not try Hitch a Ride after a few drinks at the pub. Before calling a cab and wasting money use Hitch a ride to let your friends know you are in the area, and that you need a ride.

Parents, gift this app to your children to ensure they can always call on their friends (or you) to get where they need to go safely!
