Weeels

Weeels is an application for finding its users fast rides at great rates and connecting them to people to travel with. But it is also the first step in a mass transit movement aimed at giving individuals increased agency in their metropolitan transit experience — and at transforming the way we move around and between cities.

Weeels' mission is to create a more efficient, affordable and friendly mode of transportation, a compromise between the private car and the public bus that maximizes people's "person miles per gallon" and eventually reduces traffic congestion.

Here's how it works: you tell your phone where you're going, press a button, and let it search for others around you going in that direction. Whether it finds a match or not, the app can also call you your own livery cab.
