Leaving a friend’s party after having a couple of drinks one night in South Florida, Rachel Lam was apprehensive about getting into a cab with a complete stranger.  Rachel thought to herself, “wouldn’t it be nice if I could catch a ride with a nearby friend?”

From this, SCHLEP2P – an online and on-demand community that connects friends for rides was conceived. It’s about friends helping friends – safe, fun and convenient.  At the end of the day, it’s a new take on ride share platforms, infused with the overarching notion that “true sharing” can generate real market efficiencies, promote road safety and transform the common peer-to-peer network philosophy into a community oriented “pal-to-pal” network of camaraderie and connectivity.
