We’re incredibly excited to announce that the Weeels app is now publicly available! Download Weeels (for free!) from the iTunes Store and, with at the push of a few buttons, get a cab and find fellow passengers to share it with. We’re thrilled to be giving New Yorkers a way to quickly solicit cabs — especially in places outside of Manhattan where they aren’t readily available. No Googling or phone calls necessary. And if you use Weeels to share a ride, you’ll enjoy savings from a deeply discounted ride — finally making cabs around the city affordable for those who don’t want to spend $25 to get from Park Slope to Midtown Manhattan.

Equally exciting is the environmental impact we can make together: If we can get New Yorkers to share cabs, we can get unneeded cars off the road and seriously reduce the emissions caused by the city’s cars. Read about our broader vision for Weeels and its partner transit think tank, StarLab. Right now, we’re beta testing the app: as Weeels gets into the hands of our first group of users, we’re hoping to get feedback on what’s working and where there’s room for improvement. Please feel encouraged to send feedback — no matter how big or small — to feedback@weeels.org to tell us what you think. Beta testers will also be getting invitations to Weeels events that will be happening in the next couple of months. In the meantime, look for updates here on the blog about what we’re up to and follow us on Twitter! Read up about our team and explore job opportunities at the company. And if you have any general inquiries, email info@weeels.org anytime. We look forward to hearing from you, and happy riding! Thanks, The Weeels Team
