Happy to have found be this 5/5
Much more organized than Uber or Lyft. A lot cheaper and more trustworthy in my opinion.
My usual Uber or Lyft fare to work is $9-15.
Waze carpool fair was $2.
Met really nice people, they do this to help out since they don’t receive a lot of compensation.
When can I use it?? 2/5
I've waited months for this app to become available in Philadelphia. Not sure how much longer it will take. I will leave five stars when I can use it. I want to be able to help carpool with this app but I just need for it to come to Philly!
Awful in so many ways 1/5
There’s so many things wrong with this app:
- It’s buggy. Many times you get error messages just trying to request a ride
- Matching is unreliable. Many times you won’t get a match at all, sometimes after waiting for hours you get a match that will pick you up in 10 minutes. No way of knowing ahead of time what is happening. Scoop solved this problem by only matching riders with drivers once a day.
- I recently got charged for a ride that didn’t take place.
- Support is nonexistent
- “willing to walk” option makes no sense, because a 10 Minute walk doesn’t make the life of the drivers any easier. 10 Minute walk is lime 30 seconds of driving.
I hate this app and I hate that I have to use it. To think that the employees are sitting in a plush Google Office in California, making 200k/year to release this bug-ridden heap of trash, I get furious.
Update to full screen! 1/5
By Siddharth Vellore
Please update the App to Full screen (iPhone X)
Decent idea, buggy like a beta 3/5
Use code SHIHJ8dOsT for a free ride. You have more control of time and location than other apps and it's cheaper for riders. But system is still pretty buggy in non core areas like chat. But if you ignore the bugs, it's the best deal pricewise
Cash Payment 5/5
I have made the payment to the rider in cash. Now it’s not allowing me to book a ride. It’s been days raised till now not rectified.
Unsupported area?? 2/5
I don’t know where’s this carpool app is supported...I just travel thru 3 different states and each time I try to use the carpool app, I get a “unsupported area”screen pop up. I like the concept of carpooling while sharing cost but If i can’t use it in major big cities, what’s the point?
Good idea not well executed. Not enough users. 2/5
There’s not enough drivers with this app. For anything to be really reliable.
It’s also creepy to be a fem rider, I just good dudes hitting on me that know where I live. Yay!
I found this weeks super awesome I think when they first launched it then overtime was pretty unreliable I think that was the decline of drivers. There’s a lot of bugs that happened recently with the update most of the drivers that normally would pick me up can’t even see my post I’m not entirely sure why that is they have it ever seem to fix that.
Also the doing this new thing where you can add onto a ride but it’s like not in any timeframe that you posted. I heard that wasn’t issue you a couple updates ago with drivers actually been irritated with being bombarded by riders wanting rides outside of their timeframe.
A lot of the drivers have had issues with understanding how to use the app.
The customer service is pretty OK I’ll get back to you in an OK time frame but it doesn’t actually mean that the problem will actually get fixed. In fact it doesn’t normally. What I wonder is the does the team who develop this app actually use it to ride to work or … i’m guessing no.
Lyft drivers 1/5
For lyft driver is a nightmare is super slow in every single turn.
Piece of garbage 1/5
Commuting from CT to NJ plain impossible - "out of service area".
It's year 2017. Out of service area? BS
Scared at first, but now loving it. 5/5
By Fried rivers
I was a skeptic about this app when it first came out. I hesitated to use it until a few months later and I’m happy I made that choice. I don’t need this app to make any money, I just need someone to be in my car so that I can use the carpool lane.
My first pick up was an amazing guy that works across the street and we had a really good conversation during the ride.
The only thing that I would like Waze to improve is their map directions when it comes to picking up and dropping off. At times it could be a little confusing to pin point their exact locations since there’s only a little info provided.
I would suggest people that commute a lot to start using this app so we can have more drivers and carpoolers!
Drivers are never available 1/5
I downloaded this app in hopes of finding a new method of transportation, But I was incorrect. I tried getting a match to and from work, At two different times of the day and had absolutely no luck. I love Waze as GPS application, But as a ride share app it doesn’t live up to its name. 👎👎👎👎
This app is THE most horrible app 1/5
Augh. Still can’t believe that this horrible sh*t is developed and maintained by Google.
This app responds way too slow, fails requests a LOT, now it even fails to boot up the app while I had to communicate with my carpool driver.
This app should be thrown to the trash bin and entirely rewritten from the scratch. It’s far from “reliable”.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
INTERNAL ERROR 1/5
By Shik Shot
I can’t schedule a ride, because the app always tells me that it has an “internal error”.
I’ve deleted it and reinstalled the app twice. The same issue.
Not able to book a ride 1/5
Ain’t able to get a single ride. All I see while booking a ride is, ‘Uh-oh internal error’
Buggy app 1/5
Took multiple tries to be able to successfully request a ride, I kept getting an "uh oh, internal error" message. I finally get through and later I got a ride pickup confirmation. This morning I go to the pickup spot and waited 15 minutes. I ended up having to call an Uber because he was late. I tried messaging him but the app kept giving me a error message again and then I tried called him but the app wouldn't let me place a call. Later the driver on his end said that the app told him that I had cancelled the ride last night. So many problems with this app I would not use again. In theory it's great because the rides are cheaper than Uber but the app needs to get itself together.
Sometimes you just have to stick to what you’re use to (Lyft) 1/5
First time trying to use the app and I can’t because I keep getting an internal error message when I request a ride..
Great idea but poor software 3/5
I use the app frequently but there are many times where I keep getting “Internal error” and I can’t request a ride. I hope they release a more stable version.
The application worked for one day only, then everytime i try to schedule a ride it gives me internal error message. Crap!
Can’t request ride on weekend 2/5
Keep receiving an internal error on my ride requests this weekend. I can’t request a ride for Saturday or Sunday.
Great IDEA 1/5
By Jasmin cash
Hope to use this app as soon as possible. Hurry up and get to my area 😢
Bummer for me 1/5
I just Move To Issaquah Washington from California and heard about this app from Co Workers Downloaded it get a first free ride but There isn’t no carpool available in my area yet.
I like the price
Requested multiple rides, no drivers responded 1/5
I live in the Bay Area, and there was an ad at a bus stop just a block away from my house. I don’t like using Uber for my commute because of issues with the company, Lyft is too pricey.. so I installed this app. First ride is free, and it looks like my commute price will go from ~$20 to ~$4 with this app. Sweet? Too good to be true. I requested rides 8+ hours ahead of time, and no drivers responded to my request. Uninstalling. Hopefully this app picks up and more drives come on board, but for living right next to Facebook, Instagram, Oracle, etc, it’s kind of crazy how dead it is.
Great ridesharing 5/5
App is clean and easy to use. Intuitive. I had no problems communicating with my driver were there on Wi-Fi or cellular network.
Can we change the carpool app logo? 5/5
Now looks same as the regular waze app. Can we put two persons in the carpool app logo to make it more obvious as a carpool app? Thx!
Love this app! 4/5
Much more fair than Uber or Lyft. You pay for gas, not for time or mileage. I only wish it were more accessible as you have to wait hours for a ride confirmation at times. Always book in advance. Sometimes you don’t get a ride at all, but the rides you do get are always great and friendly.
Cannnot request a ride 1/5
App won’t let me request a ride for tomorrow
Great service 5/5
Good for humanity
Great App! 4/5
Updating my review as promised! It now works a lot better! It now only show connection error occasionally. But it still works! Great App! LOVE wazecarpool absolutely! It was convenient to arrange rides. All my carpool partners are really nice fun people!
I tried to schedule a ride in three different occasions... with plenty of time/days ahead. They never found a ride for me. Pointless for me to keep trying.
Awesome scientist! 5/5
Marshall was on time, and super cool guy to talk to. Found out he’s in breakthrough science and I find that super admirable.
Awful. I ended up late to work 1/5
This app is terrible and riders beware.
At first, it seemed good to use as an alternative to lyft or driving alone, and cheap. Riders can use Waze Carpool messenger to message the driver and vice versa. All seemed good so far as driver was picked and we messaged to each other about the destination. The next day, the only thing the driver messaged was he woke up late 10 minutes before pick up time. Then, no response. He didn’t bother to message or call me if he was still coming to pick me up while I am in the cold waiting until designated time. And once you click the “I am here” button, it doesn’t seem like you can cancel. Not to mention you cannot leave a review for drivers. I am sure if driver was on time and had no problems, it would be a great app to use. HOWEVER, if drivers or riders become a problem, it becomes a headache. My first impression and first non ride of Waze Carpool is terrible and I will just stick with commuting alone.
Too many 😒
When it’s available 5/5
First ride was in a nice Audi S4 for 3.40 cents. Awesome app when there are drivers available around you. A tip is to increase the distance willing to walk to get your ride accepted
Sweet service 5/5
Great saving over car ownership or taxis, or even busses sometimes
A community of “Cool-Poolers” 5/5
Fantastic UI and even more fantastic people, it really feels like a win-win-win for drivers, riders, and Waze. Drivers cover gas, I get a ride, and Waze gets the satisfaction of building a super cool community of cool-poolers!
Here’s why I’m excited about Waze Carpool:
- Cost Effective. Same $ as Caltrain and it’s (almost) door-to-door.
- Friendly. I’ve had great conversations with people I would never usually meet...even met a fellow Minnesotan.
- Flexible. I can request a ride part way through the day in response to my meeting schedule or after work plans that pop-up.
- Efficient. Waze takes us on the best routes to combat traffic. And I’ve saved so much time not walking to the Caltrain or taking ride-sharing apps.
Excited to continue to carpool with Waze. One week in and I’m sold!
I wish this had come out sooner. It makes my life so much easier!!! And I save a good amount of money.
Great first carpool experience! 5/5
By Mike A in LA
The process was quick and easy. Nice to see live map connection of my ride coming. Joshua was super cool as well.
Can’t login & Horrible experience 1/5
After connecting with the google account, can’t login to the app! “Uh-oh Something went wrong. Try connecting again.” I have to use my Android to see my trip. Please fix.
So the login bug was fixed. However, 30 min before the ride, an extra passenger was matched but the app didn’t update my time and waited for 20 min for the other rider.
What’s worse, for some reason the driver doesn’t know where my location is even though I am at the exact location Waze shows me. We end up have to send each other the google location to find each other. What a shame!
My usual commute with Bart is 90 minutes. This app doesn’t save my time and adds much more hassle and totally waste of time.
I scheduled a ride 4 times and Waze turned me down every single time, it couldn’t match a ride for me and I have to search for alternatives in the last minute which turns to be expensive.
Login broken 1/5
By Mark Beck
Uh-oh. Something went wrong. Try connecting again 1/5
Do you need a ride? Like being left stranded by system glitches that make Uber seem amazing? Try Uh-Oh Something went wrong. Try connecting again. a.k.a. Waze Carpool.
Busted in iOS 11 5/5
Totally awesome before.
Won't connect at all under iOS 11
Always let me login again and can’t connect 1/5
Really really hard to use. It always log out my account and let me login again. And always said something wrong, need to connect later. But all of other apps work, only this one can’t connect.
Can’t sign in 2/5
By why I can't submit my review
The app was working fine until I updated it. After updating, I was frequently logged out from my account and today I can’t even login. Seems new version is adding up more bugs instead of fixing them.
Broken Login system 1/5
Only way to log in is with google account, and when I add credentials it keeps saying “oops something went wrong”
insensitive riders canceled after I drove there 1/5
Twice it happened to me that insensitive riders canceled after I drove there. Waze needs to add penalty to riders who cancelled after drivers have started driving to pickup point. Then compensate the drivers.
