The art of transporting from one place to another without own transport method (ie. a car, bicycle) and without using public transport (ie. a train, bus). Instead, one asks passing drivers wether they’d like to take the person with them. When a driver takes the person with him/her, we speak of “hitchhiking” or “lifting”. The person, who generally gets a ride for free (as in beer), is called a “hitchhiker” or “lifter”.
