My first ride was great :)
Very good 5/5
By Alvaro sss
I like the price
Nice idea 5/5
This is great and will be truly amazing when it gets popular
Great concept easy to use app. 5/5
What a cool concept and fantastic system. It's my new go to rather than using Uber or Lyft.
Not working 1/5
I cant make account and add my number ! Is it because its not working in saudi arabia?
first ride was free! 5/5
i tried this app cuz my car was being repaired and was glad the first ride is free :) now i will use it more both as a driver and passenger
Safe and save Alto of money and support community 5/5
By Beautiful Professor
This is my first time so I very concern about safety ...
But I'm very happy with this and will use more in the future
Never connects 1/5
By Stupid usernames already taken
I've been trying to get rides for about the last four months and it says that there are over 150 drivers on my route and then it usually says connecting to 4-10 drivers (depending on the day) and it always times out. It's really stressful how they make you wait until the last minute to find out if a driver said yes. I've started setting it about 15-30 minutes early depending on how important the place is that I'm going to but it still never seems to connect me to a driver. How can it go from 150+ drivers on my route to no one?? I've emailed the help center and they didn't help at all. They said that I just need to be more patient but I live in a large city so shouldn't that help? I've tried deleting the app and installing it again but nothing seems to help. I really wish they'd fix this because it seemed like such a great idea and concept.
Great concept - poor execution 1/5
Initially I gave this app 5 stars, I was amazed by the simple and generous approach. I've only had 2 rides since I got the app almost 3 months ago and both with the same driver. Second time, I was 4 minutes late, and when I got in the car I apologized and the driver smiled and said no problem. Next thing I knew, he gave me one star review. And no one NO ONE wants to give me a ride anymore. It's ridiculous! It's been TWO MONTHS! I get it, I was in the wrong when I was late but the driver lied to my face and said everything was fine, he said it WITH A SMILE!! I realized later, he probably did it to make sure I give him good rating which I did - 5 stars. I don't know how many times in the last 2 months (not a joke, TWO MONTHS!!) I emailed and messaged waze carpool customer support and explained the situation, asked them to do something about it. Every time it was a new person responding me with the follow up, so they never know anything about the case. it doesn't matter if I provide my case number, they don't bother reading. So I had to explain what happened over and over and over and over again. And every time they give me empty promises or blame it on updates. Last time I said that it's the rating and I asked them to erase it because it's crazy. I've only taken two rides and both with the same driver. It's been two months and I can't use the app. You know what they said? That they've investigated and results show that rating has nothing to do with it. Really? For two months??? It's just a coincidence? Then what? But they provide no answer. Basically, up until something happens, the app is great. But God forbid you displease your driver in any way, you're doomed. Don't even count for customer support. It simply doesn't exist. And they don't care about you anyway. Think about it, there are thousands of passengers like you and me but only so many drivers. So drivers are important, passengers are not. Remember that!
NOT AVAILABLE IN MY AREA 4/5
So I got the app thinking I'm all set, the whole concept looks great but it is not available in my area :( sadly. I think it would be great if it was.
*could* be awesome? 2/5
I have yet to get matched with someone who follows through. I am a driver (no other choice given my schedule) and I've been matched with ppl but they always cancel right before.
I'll give it another 2 weeks before I delete the app. As much as I like the idea, and conceivably have a popular commute (given the amount of ppl on the freeway on the way home). But if I miss anymore OT from planning on picking someone up and they cancel I'm not gonna be happy. Ill try a bit longer.
Very cool but can do better 4/5
By Oleg Naumenko
This app has really evolved well since I first installed it. Please do something to make it more battery - savvy on my iPhone 5s! Thank You.
Could be better 4/5
The app continues to grow. It's a long way from when it started but my only issue with directions would be showing my second step under the directions like google maps along with what lane I should be in about 0.5 miles ahead of time so I know when to switch lanes especially when there is a lot of traffic.
5 stars for responding 5/5
Use case: Find Gas
Directs me around a block in a circle...going PAST a gas station.
99% of apps are epically retarded, and waze & team apparently aren't of them.
The fact waze responded, made me see that waze gives a f.
Good. I will reciprocate.
Thanks & rub off on others
Game changing 5/5
By Will sing for high fives
This is a major game changer for my regular commute, and the way we think about ride share. So much simpler, more personal, and actually does what other ride shares say they do -- reduces cars on the road, connects community, saves everyone money.
By Nearly luv
Just wish I could get more rides!
It would be a Five star app but..... 2/5
Its been impossible to get a match tried a few times and nothing, if it was easier to get a match it would be awesome but thats not the case. This is my experience so far in the San Francisco Bay Area
Great carpool match 5/5
Great carpool match
Cant verify phone number 1/5
How do i sign up if it won't verify my phone number? I get an error that says: "internal error: request contains invalid argument"............
Works like a charm 5/5
Waze Carpool just works - a reliable, safe, cheap ride to work (or home) when I need one. It's easy to use....literally 1-2 taps and I've booked a ride. Thank you Waze for this amazing service. Keep the good stuff coming...
Horrible, risky and unregulated 1/5
A few times I tried this app and every time I either had a unhygienic vehicle or a less than reputable carpool driver. Mix that together with the fact they're normally picking u up or going to you home it's just a very "Craigslist killer" type of app
Soo Efficient 5/5
This is hella efficient and so cheap, a usually $17 Lyft ride is only $3 ,I'm so excited to use this more
Very cool app 5/5
Nice car pool app with directions
It helps a great deal! 5/5
By Kate Voz
Great app for Carpool 5/5
Cool App and Cheap Ride 5/5
Thank you Waze Carpool! I saved $20 for my ride.
Great Idea - good for everybody!! 5/5
Always wanted to carpool, but dint have anyone at work to do it with. This is a great way to find carpoolers. It's easy and it's cool!
Waze carpool 5/5
By Cone Dodger
Great system. Traffic would be reduced if more people would start riding together. I encourage everyone to carpool.
Works great 5/5
Depending on your route, you may have trouble finding reliable partners. However, works great and easy to use.
Got me where I need to go on time. 5/5
Great app easy to use
Great carpool app 5/5
Using it everyday
So easy to use 5/5
Save so much money using app.
Very cool app
Works Great! 5/5
By J Kurpies
Just completed my first carpool ride with Waze Carpool and will definitely be using the service again!
App matched me with a carpool that cancelled last-minute 1/5
The carpool matches are made too late to be reliable. I was not matched until late into my requested time; but My driver cancelled last-minute. The app gave me a one-time push notification from the driver, which subsequently vanished, leaving no trace of what happened. I glanced at the fleeting push notification toast message and saw the driver's last-minute excuse - bad back problem. After that I tried to retrieve it and could not. Lame. I provided a 1 hour 15 minute window 7:00-8:15 am and had to scramble to find other means to get to work: (Ub*r).
Try other apps until this one is more reliable.
LOVE THIS APP 5/5
I've been driving for Waze Carpool for a couple months now and think it's absolutely awesome. We need to get more people on here!
Unmatched for three times during 4 hours 2/5
I wanted to go from San Mateo to Hayward by San Mateo Bridge, there are hundreds of wazers going that way however, this app couldn't find a match
Works like a charm 5/5
By Serene Sailing
I live in LA and tried to use this a month ago with no luck, literally no one fulfilled my request for days. Re-downloaded it and I used my free promo. Excellent communication with the carpooler, he came 10 mins early, clean car and great driver. Hopefully this service will relieve traffic and make LA more efficient!
Love having this option! 5/5
By awesome gamer1275
I recently moved to Los Angeles and have been holding off on buying a car due to not wanting to add to heavy traffic! I started getting to and from work by Uber but it was starting to add up so quickly. Thank goodness I found Waze carpool, I'm getting rides at 1/4 of the cost I was paying for Uber and it's super convenient to arrange rides. I would highly recommend this app!
Waze Is A Life Save 4/5
By Aditya O
With not having a car, right now waze carpool is my core ride application. With this I get to and from work everyday 😀
Great way to save time and money!
1 - Recent drivers are not loading all the time- some bug that needs to be fixed ASAP.
2 - Overall the cost can be a bit lower, but I am ok with what I pay 👍
Keep up the good work!!
Helped My Sanity 5/5
The app has changed my life. My commute is now half the cost and half the time. I've now made great friends with my drivers (I don't have a car so I'm always a passenger). Only thing that needs improvement is the app. When I request a ride a lot of the time my driver (who I usually ride with) can't see that I have requested a ride from her. Some minor bugs that need fixing
Twice unmatched 2/5
Twice I've requested a ride. Twice I've went unmatched. Seems pretty unreliable for a service that should in theory be a consistent, reliable commute option. Also how can I not have a guaranteed ride back? Or at least be matched with someone? That seems like a dangerous gamble especially when my work is 2 hours away by public transport.
Ready for this to catch on 5/5
Clean interface and an amazing service. Be sure to request early. App handles everything.
Great initiative 4/5
Very convenient. Great overall. Only two issues, the app didn't send me a notification once I got a ride, even though they're enabled on my device, and so I was lucky that I saw the e-mail that was sent to me once I got paired or I might have missed it. Secondly, I would like it if I was able to finish the ride myself and not have to wait on the driver, in case they forget and I need to schedule another ride before they're able to respond.
פשוט עובד מדהים 5/5
By Toppp gearrrrrrr
ממשק נוח זול. משתמש עכשיו כל יום וחוסך אלפי שקלים בחודש
Great penny-saver 4/5
It is a great concept to encourage carpool and the app is working hard to find you a ride for the time you need a trip. Tip: request at least a few hours in advance to find a ride, don't wait last minute. Not many yet know about Waze carpool, so it takes a while to search for a driver.
When driving myself, I don't get many requests, but hope this will grow in the future as it will help me with my gas.
Fast response 5/5
By Sandhya tidke
1. Safe carpool
2. Fast response even at 9.00 in night
Love it 5/5
Such a great idea and honestly, well executed through the app.
And hopefully if more people will start using it it will only get better with time
This is my first week of using this app as a driver and although I was reluctant at first, now I'm so glad I tried it out. I've never used any kind of carpooling app before this. Waze carpool makes it easy to see rides that I can choose to accept or not, depending on how convenient the route is for me.
One suggestion to the developers: Show real time location of the rider so that the driver can find that person easily, say if they're not exactly at the pickup spot they are supposed to be at.
Overall, I've been appreciative of this app because it helps cover my gas money!! Thank you Waze and keep it up!
