I found this website called submate.com which basically allows users to find other people who may possibly take the same subways, hence the "sub" in submate. It's supposed to be an easy way to "break the ice" while on the commute. It markets itself as a dating service for people with similar commutes. I read about the article in the New York Post. I still find it a little weird, but it is an interesting concept. Instead of a train where people stay reserved and to themselves, there may be more people interacting and developing relationships. This website was created about a week ago and it will be interesting to see if it gains any popularity.
