In some areas, slug/drivers are "matched" via email coordination. Usually this is done via an email list server or somebody just volunteers to do it for everyone in that area.

Well, a new web-based automated system may be added Slug-Lines.com to make this process a lot easier!! A smart computer programmer has volunteered to see if this process can be automated. Basically, you would enter your destination (Horner) and timeframe (4:00-4:30) and it would match you with the riders or a driver.

More to follow, but its an excited feature to help slugs!

NOTE FROM PROGRAMMER: Well, I'm hoping to start Alpha-Testing the new system in about a month. This will be done by using it to match rides from Rosslyn to Rt.17 (the route I slug in). After all the "Whoopsi's" are found and fixed, we'll expand it for general use. Current estimate: Mid to late July.
