Because the craigslist rideshare section seems a bit too slasher-movie crazy sometimes, we now have Zimride, a new ride sharing service built on a social media backbone. If you have a car, you can set a price per seat to get a passenger to tag along; or if you’re looking for a ride, you can search for people headed your way and find a cheap ride.
