This is now Check for bug reports and feature requests. is a website showing good and bad hitching spots on a map. It uses Google Maps. Everyone can add hitching spots. The intention is, to create a detailed world map with hitching spots everywhere. Feel free to add every single place, where you ever tried to get a ride.

At the moment it's growing very fast. It had almost 200 Points only 4 weeks after it's official release. The most are in the Netherlands and other European countries.

It is set up by MrTweek, who is also taking care of hosting the Hitchwiki.

new Features coming soon

  • Export to Google Earths kml-format (and maybe others).
  • multiple ratings for hitching spots (avery user can rate a point)
  • Embed the whole thing into hitchwiki.

Feature suggestions

Please tell me about new features, that you want to have in Liftershalte ;)

  • Possibility to upload pictures.
    • Proposal: let people use images uploaded to Hitchwiki



Can you help with some features, programming?
  • Guaka, will probably be able to help out with integrating available couches on CS
That would be really cool. How do you think this could be realized? --MrTweek 01:07, 5 December 2006 (CET)
I think it will be exchanging kml data. But I'm not an expert. I will just make sure that you will get in touch with whoever will be the CS expert. Which could be you if you want to! ;) Guaka 02:57, 6 December 2006 (CET)
Yes, that would probably the best way. I first want to concentrate on finding bugs and making it more stable. So I'll probably start implementing this in a few weeks. --MrTweek 10:50, 6 December 2006 (CET)
  • There is a German development wiki at Feel free to post there, but MrTweek would like to slowly move the content to hitchwiki.
  • If you are a native English speaker, please contact MrTweek if anything sounds weird or wrong.
