Visit: Let's Carpooooool

Very accurate Car Pooling system that matches drivers and riders not only from similar origin to similar destination (like market leader BlaBlacar) but all along the route. Thus, improving dramatically the probability of matching drivers and riders. 90% of my efforts were focused on the backend system working with the Google Maps API.

Test it yourself: Sign-up, create a trip as a driver (only in the USA), Log-out, search the trip as a rider (or cities in between), match happen.
