HitchTofino was created by two web geeks in Vancouver, following the success of HitchWhistler, a rideshare site dedicated to getting shredders to the hill for less. As spring arrived we decided to launch a sister site for surfers and HitchTofino was born. Surf more. Spend less. That's our mission statement.
The completely free site allows people to register as a Driver or a Hitcher and then post or view trips from various locations in BC including: Victoria, Tofino, Vancouver, Whistler, Nanaimo and Ucluelet. Driver's can specify how many petrodollars they want for the trip and Hitcher's can message them through the site. In the process everyone gets a top up of green karma, saves some cash and meets some like-minded people.
A valid email address is needed to register and the site's feedback system allows for extra security so you can check a drivers profile before accepting a ride.
Update: A reader alerted me to another long-standing option, Tofino Ride Share.
