A few months ago, I saw a car driving around with the “Tooxme” logo, but I had no idea what it was. I thought it was something similar to the Google Maps cars that drive around.

Then, I saw an ad or something, and looked it up. It’s pretty cool; they call it “Social Mobility.” TCS is a partner, to lend it some credibility.

People download the app from iTunes Store or Google Play and create an account. Thereafter, if you are driving somewhere and have space in your car, you put in your destination and indicate that you are available. If someone along y

our route needs a ride, you’ll be notified and can make the pickup.

On the other hand, if you are without a car, you can indicate where you are and where you want to go and if someone is traveling that route, you’ll be matched.

The cool thing is that drivers earn credit for driving around while “available.” It’s not much, but it’s a small incentive.

I’ve been “available” for about a month and I often forget to change my status to “Available,” but I’ll keep trying. I haven’t had a rider, yet, but maybe someday soon.

Does anyone else use Tooxme? Need a ride?
