RideCheck Offers Summer Ridesharing Across the USA and Canada!

NEW YORK--(CCNMatthews - Jul 25, 2005) -

RideCheck, LLC announced today that it is ready for expanded summer rideshare operations across the USA and Canada at its website, www.RideCheck.com .

RideCheck offers a secure online database of road trips spanning across North America. Vehicle owners and riders benefit from the service by sharing a convenient ride and travel expenses, while reducing pollution and traffic congestion.

RideCheck.com serves each and every North American town and city, and it provides an inexpensive and more personal alternative to mass transportation. RideCheck allows adults to search rides based on various criteria, including departure date, gender, smoking habits and college or university (if a student).

"A person can also instruct the site to report back on newly posted rides of interest," says Clyde Mitchell, the principal founder of RideCheck. The website also has various security measures.

The site is currently free. "RideCheck will be very helpful for making cost-efficient summer travel plans. The more people that use the site, the more effective it will be for everyone," says Mitchell. Ridesharing will then become more effective and commonplace.

Various articles endorsing RideCheck have been published by college newspapers across the continent, covering over 100,000 students. They include the newspapers at Baruch College at The City University of New York, Illinois Statue University, North Dakota State University, Northeastern University, the University of New Mexico, and the University of Waterloo in Canada.

RideCheck was founded by Clyde Mitchell. A rideboard user during his student days at MIT in the 1970s, he realized that the rideboard ride was often the best alternative, even within the heavily traveled Northeast Corridor, despite hourly air shuttles and regular bus and train service.

The RideCheck team hopes that the website will assist people in traveling about the continent, saving time and money, meeting new people and conserving fossil fuel.
