  • Hey I would love to be able to let people know about the rideshare platform available to them in Canada and the USA. We are disrupting the traditional train + bus means of transporation by allowing people to travel by filling empty seats in cars. In turn this cuts cost, help people meet one another, and does some great things for the environment as well.

    Every Canada blog/forum I’ve found so far focuses only on Greyhound and Viarail. Both take forever and are much more expensive than the $0.12/km people pay for trips on HitchPlanet.

    How can I get involved with this blog?
