Safer, cheap ridesharing
Quebec City-based startup Kangaride.com is slowly moving ridesharing into the mainstream. A membership with the site costs $7.50, and each individual ride booking is $5. That money goes towards checking the driving records of its users through an agreement with provincial governments to provide a safer experience than Craigslist ads, while being cheaper than intercity buses. Over 5000 rides are posted per week.
