HopStop to Offer More Than Directions

Its core function novel no longer, HopStop on Monday announced a major expansion of its vision, branching off from transport and into a more general-use lifestyle app for urban dwellers. Users of the company’s Web site will be able to rent cars by the hour, book limos, find reviews of local businesses, see daily deals and check listings of local events. The company is also adding a social component, where users can tell their friends on Facebook and Twitter where they will be at a certain time.
