According to a Markets and Markets Analysis, the global ridesharing market is projected to grow from 85.8 billion USD in 2021 to 185 billion USD in 2026. While there are different ridesharing applications already on the market, there are currently no options designed to help facilitate long-distance travel. Companies like Uber and Lyft are over-priced, while other solutions do not exist countrywide and have confusing or limited interfaces. HitchHike implements a peer-to-peer network to help connect users for long-distance ridesharing opportunities while sharing expenses. Its intuitive design allows drivers and riders to have more flexibility and control over their trips while supporting an environmentally conscientious mindset. HitchHike also offers a more comfortable and reliable alternative to public transportation accessible to everyone. It’s time we support one another to share the burden of cost while helping the planet as we travel the country together.
