Hitch is the first on-demand multi-pickup solution--an iOS app offering an extremely affordable (50% of an UberX) and convenient transportation solution. Rather than booking an entire car, you only reserve the amount of seats you need, allowing them to pick up other passengers heading the same location you are. Unlike other car-sharing solutions, this all happens in real-time and requires no advance planning on your part. Simply drop two pins, and a car comes to pick you up.
By sharing the ride, cost is significantly lowered, environmental impact is minimized, and you get to ride to your favorite venue/concert/event with other people with similar interests. And their dynamic re-route algorithm makes sure that your trip duration isn't significantly affected.
