What about Hitch.net.nz?
Jayride is designed and run by the same people who brought you Hitch.net.nz. Hitch.net.nz was a carpool website launched in January 2007 that quickly became New Zealand’s biggest and most popular transport-sharing website. By the end of 2008 we had learnt a lot about you and decided to improve our service: We rewrote everything from the ground up, and renamed our site Jayride.
