About Us

Hitchsters is an easy-to-use website that conveniently connects travelers going to and from airports so that they can share a ride (and thus split the fare). The hitchsters.com matching system makes riding in a car to the airport more affordable, more convenient, safer, and more environmentally-friendly.

Using the Internet to efficiently connect people, Hitchsters also offers a unique social aspect - you can express a preference for the gender of your co-rider. If you would like to be matched with a co-rider of a certain gender, just let us know! You can state your choice as either a preference or a requirement (or skip this altogether if you don't care and just want to save some cash).

We think traveling is fun. So is meeting cool people. Hitchsters helps you do both and saves you money at the same time!

How it works

Log in to your MyHitchsters account, enter your trip itinerary, and select your saved location. (Not there? Add a new one to your MyHitchsters profile).

When matched, you will be notified with a text message and e-mail containing the first name and cell phone of your co-rider (nothing else is shared). As an additional safety feature, we preserve the phone numbers of all of the successful matches.

A partnering car service calls each party to arrange the ride.

If you are sharing a ride to the airport, then you will only be matched with someone else who is leaving from your area to go to the same airport. If you are sharing a ride from the airport, you will only be matched with someone who is on the same flight (no worries about late flights) and going to the same area you are.

After your trip, you will have an opportunity to evaluate your co-rider, and the limo company, with a "thumbs-up" or "thumbs-down" rating.

Why Limo Companies

Never Miss a Ride Again. How many times have you tried to catch a cab during rush hour? With a limo, you will get professional, door-to-door, on-time service.

Comparable Price. Believe it or not, limo companies have to be competitive with cabs, too. (We know you probably use Hitchsters to save cash, so don't worry, we wouldn't have done this unless it made thrifty sense). And now, you only pay half price.

Environmentally Friendly. Many websites claim to be environmentally friendly, but we're actually doing something about it. Not only does using Hitchsters mean one less carbon-emitting vehicle on the road, we also partner with environmentally-friendly car services. We'll help you track your carbon footprint through MyHitchsters, as well - if you reach a certain amount, we'll take 25% off your next ride to the airport.

Expansion. Not every city uses cabs to get to/from airport, so this will help Hitchsters achieve scale in the coming months, as we expand to different cities. And if you think about it, using Hitchsters to "bookend" your journey can save you upwards of $100 per trip.
