Hitchsters: Share A Cab

Posted on November 20, 2006 Under Travel

I can’t count how many times I’ve been in a taxi-line in any-city USA and just know there must be other people in the line going to the same location as me. Once in a while I take my chances and pipe out ‘anyone going to Williamsburg’– but usually I get a row of blank stares from the line, looking back at me as if they were a group of Russian gypsies, hardly understanding a single word I said. Once in a blue moon I get the cute girl who wants to share a ride, which goes great until I realize she’s on her way to meet her boyfriend, who is, wait for it– naturally a day trader. Still in a NYC Beta, Hitchsters is a site which might not do anything about the day-trading boyfriend, but it does wonders to help people cut travel costs by sharing cabs to and from the airport– check it out on your next trip in or out of New York.
