This transportation app works a bit like a travel site that compares deals for you, except it helps you find the right mode of transit and comes with a five minute promise. The Shift app from Project 100 helps you find a transportation method and in five minutes gets you to it. An algorithm determines the best vehicle for where you are going, making urban transit simpler.
Ideal for those who don't own a car, the transportation app minimizes the hassle while offering you lots of options -- including small cars, sedans, bicycles and rides. Shift is more than an app and asks users to join a monthly membership. Currently in beta, the service differentiates itself from traditional taxis as well as apps like Uber.
