RideAmigos: Car-Sharing in NYC


Ride-sharing gets up close and local for New Yorkers with RideAmigos, a new money- and planet-saving service that launched earlier this month.

The site, which allows you to create cab-shares online, hooks you up with other New Yorkers who are embarking from the same place or headed to the same destination.You can also specify whether you want a one-time ride or recurring daily transportation. Every registered user gets a RideAmigos rewards card that entitles you to bargains and discounts at various stores, gyms, restaurants, and events throughout the five boroughs. ::RideAmigos
