NYT blogs about gtrot

The New York Times travel blog, In Transit: A Guide to Intelligent Travel, picked up the gtrot launch, posting this nice piece about the site!  Tanya Mohn writes, “There are Web sites for sharing car rides, booking tickets and, of course, social networking. Gtrot, a Web site that launched today, plans to combine them all.”  The post emphasizes the booking features, which will allow users to find flight and hotels, share cabs and rides, and then automatically share their travel plans with friends.

These features are coming soon, and will be rolled out incrementally over the next six weeks - all in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.  In the meantime, take a minute to record all of your past trips and upcoming plans, and have fun exploring your friends’ travels.  Stay tuned for updates!

Give us about two months to finish development.  Sign up here and follow us on Twitter (@gtrot) – we’ll let you know just as soon as we go live.

In the meantime, we’ll be blogging regularly to introduce our team, update you on our progress, give you specifics about the site, and solicit your advice.

We’ll also have guest bloggers posting about their summer travels in Europe, South America, Asia, and everywhere in-between.  These gtrotters will give you the inside scoop on must-see places for college students, along with their craziest travel stories.  We’ve even got some traveling pairs who will debate the big issues:  plane vs. train, careful planning vs. spontaneity, Rome vs. Venice, Prado vs. Louvre.

Happy gtrotting!
