Best Reason to Believe in Ride Sharing 


Homobiles, the ride-sharing organization originally started for drag queens and the LGBTQ community, is staying true to its roots. While other companies practice "surge pricing" and quietly switch from donations to mandatory fares, Homobiles remains a pay-what-you-can service. "When you get in a Homobile, you can donate or not, depending on your budget," says founder Lynn Breedlove. "This creates a better foundation for society than 'the guy who dies with the most toys wins.'" Another bonus for folks on a budget: Rides are requested via text, so using Homobiles doesn't require a smartphone. And no, you don't need an acronym to ride. Everyone is welcome.
