Quebec-based LiveRides.ca, a ridesharing network, has launched an iPhone app. The free mobile app will allow long distance commuters to find and offer car rides anywhere in Canada from their smartphone.
“Canadians have traditionally stayed away from other forms of ridesharing. Up until now, drivers and passengers didn’t have the ability to see who they’d share a ride with,” said Steven LaChance, co-founder of LiveRides.ca. "With LiveRides social profiles, drivers and passengers now have the ability to view each other’s profiles to help them make a more informed decision about their travel partner. By sharing a ride, people save gas and money, reduce carbon emissions and meet new friends.”
LiveRides serves all major urban markets across Canada giving Canadians the flexibility to choose whom they want to ride with, where they want to meet, what they are willing to pay and the ability rate each other on LiveRides social profiles for additional convenience and safety.
