Carpooling just got easier with the introduction of a new app that makes ride sharing a breeze. The Ride Remedy app, introduced by CorGar, LLC, aims to "save the planet one ride at a time." It's an idea we've heard before: with Zimride, 511 Rideshare and Carticipate.
Ride sharing is a good idea because it saves on fuel costs and reduces overall emissions, but it is often a time consuming endeavor to search for others in your area interested in carpooling and heading in the same direction. RideRemedy wants to make it easy for carpoolers to connect with others interested in sharing a ride.

The RideRemedy app focuses on keeping user privacy intact by not revealing email addresses or phone numbers of those involved in the ride sharing process. RideRemedy is currently available for download in the iTunes app store. It's free for the first three months and moves up to $4.99 a year. Ten percent of the proceeds go back to organizations aiming to improve and protect our planet. Interested in learning more? Follow us after the jump for a video highlighting the benefits of RideRemedy, if you haven't seen something like this before.

      I really like the idea of keeping your email and phone number private. NOT. That makes this no less dangerous than hitchhiking. And I don't have to hope for some other tool with an iPhone and the right app to hitchhike.

      Sounds like a new version of slugging. Though it will be hard to beat the simplicity of a slug line, this app looks like it will allow the virtual equivalent in many more areas that currently have never heard of ride sharing lines.

      Works for some and doesn't work for others. So the "some" make use of it and the "others" move on to other things. As for myself, is a great tool when I'm traveling on business. Splitting a taxi ride makes is as or more affordable than the shuttle buses and I don't have to visit a bunch of hotels that aren't mine or wait for the damn shuttle bus to fill while it's still at the airport.

      Keep the new world order ideas flowing freely like Gary Payton after he picked Michael Jordan's pocket, drove ta the hoop and gently kissed the basketball off da glass for another two points in his illustrious career for the Seattle Supersonics.
