As the world's first "social transit" mobile application, the Weeels cab-sharing app strives to both help the environment and create an easier way to hail public transportation.

A commuter can log in and input their destination, and the application searches for available rides. You have the option of sharing a cab (saving money and gas), or taking a solo ride. The Weeels cab-sharing app creates a social experience in regards to public transit.

Implications - The convergence between eco-friendliness and web 2.0 apps has resulted in a huge business boom for invested companies. It's not too late, however, and companies should direct their efforts toward building increasingly sustainable and accessible products.
