The only true carpool riding app! 5/5
By habits are a blessing
I love this app! I am so happy there’s a real carpooling app out there that connects you with people going your route—-I live in the part of the suburbs that’s hard to travel by metro, and Uber costs would be horrific. The app was able to find me 5+ drivers who drove along my route! My only thing is, sometimes there is so much walking involved to and from pickup/drop off stops that you would be better off taking the bus, but it is very affordable and a great way to meet people!
¡¡¡No good!!! 1/5
I tried setting up the app but the codes they sent kept saying “wrong code”. Whaaaat!?! After many attempts I had to cancel it. Very frustrating!!!!
Ghost Town 2/5
I don’t think anyone uses this app in my area. No one ever offers rides or responds to ride invitations or requests. It feels like a failed attempt for Waze to make money from their app.
Drivers flake 1/5
Every single time I’ve tried to get a ride the drivers flake. This app is useless, just use Lyft or Uber.
Privacy concerns 2/5
I downloaded this app to see if it’s something I could use on a regular basis, and it looks very promising up front. But when I started to sign in and enter my information like, when I leave home and when I get to work; and my origination and Destination locations, I was asked to create a profile. I’m willing to create a profile but the only two choices I had to create a profile is to create it using either my Facebook account profile or my Google account profile.
I’m not interested in allowing access to any app of my Facebook or Google account profile information, but I am willing to enter profile Information directly as I see fit. Since this option does not appear to be available, I will not be using the Waze carpool app after all. Great idea, but you want too much information For my taste.
Do not use, scam. Charge for rides never received. 1/5
They charged me for rides I never got. No insurrections on how or when you’re charged. I think I may have accepted rides, but the guy backed out. Never got the rides. They charged my card for four rides on four future dates. How are you going to charge for rides not even done yet? So if you’re a scam artist just sign up to be a driver and you’ll be paid for rides you never have to do. Waze won’t even address my emails regarding the fraudulent charges so I have to dispute with the bank and I will also complain to the BBB. If you want to trust a stranger that they will show up and pick you up, good luck. They’re paid in advance. Completely useless. Do not use!!! PS just found out from a driver Waze doesn’t do background checks on the drivers - so don’t get yourself murdered!!!!
App crashes all the time, I can’t update my schedule, it is always “loading” available drivers. Awful.
Flexible for my commute 5/5
This app is a lifesaver! I don’t have a car, and I always find super affordable rides to work with people in my area who are already going the same way as I am. I’ve met some really great people and even made some friends!
My favorite part about this app is the flexibility. I’m not always sure which days/times/locations I’m commuting, which is why I love the ability to customize my schedule day-by-day for whatever works for me.
I’m over it 2/5
I love how it’s set up but the drivers don’t let you know about the ride till like right before it’s time to go.
Crashes all the time and makes it impossible to begin carpool because of excessive lag 1/5
The app constantly jumps back and forth from regular Waze to the carpool app as a driver and makes it extremely hard to accept a ride as a rider because it continually crashes.
What a rip off 1/5
It won’t pick me up from home. It says I have to walk over a mile to a pickup spot and wait for a long time just for a driver to pick me up. What a joke.
Asks the wrong questions 1/5
The app is supposed to help set a carpool. Sadly it asks the wrong questions and wants you to unilaterally make decisions. So you enter what time you want to leave NOT what time you need to be at work.
You decide if you want to be a driver or a rider. No option to say both, and no way to indicate that which role, driver or rider on a given day, depends on life circumstances.
Worst app ever . I haven’t taken any rides and it’s been taking money out of my account . I want my money back . I don’t know who I can talk to . They still have my payment information and I can’t delete my account since I want a refund for the money I wasn’t aware was being taken out of my account
So much for Waze. They upped their prices tremendously. I don’t even know how many stars to give them. The app was incredible. Especially with not driving and wanting to get home at 6 it was really working out for me since I found two regular riders every day that I could carpool with. I was only paying two dollars a day to get home. Now it’s over 7 dollars. Insane!! I really loved Waze but unfortunately i won’t be using it. It’s not worth spending almost 8 dollars a day. Guess I’ll just have to split the cost with a coworker and Uber to the train station since it’s much cheaper
Great for carpooling, but needs improvements 2/5
App only lets you login with a social media account. It should allow sign up with email. There should be a feature to see if anyone is even using the app in your area before signing up. Since this is a carpool service, there should be a way to see what the charges would be for your ride.
Useful app, reasonably accessible with voiceover screen reader 4/5
I am a visually impaired iPhone user. I like Waze because I can identify where the pick up and drop off points are using voiceover. This feature is not yet accessible using the carpool options on several other popular apps. However, Waze still needs some improvements. My rider rating is not spoken properly, as voiceover does not indicate partial stars. So even though I have close to a five star rating, it tells me that I am at four. Another concern is that focus tends to be spotty on the main screen when there are incoming ride offers from drivers. Overall though, this app is very promising.
Useless app as there are never drivers available (even in busy cities such as Tel Aviv and Haifa)
I was charged a subscription fee idk how and why i never used the app and i would like a refund
Doesn’t work 1/5
Cannot login and the support form displays an error when I attempt to send the support ticket
Bad idea 1/5
By Dark UnHoly
No background checks. This is a recipe for a disaster. Now another bulgur way to take away money from real chauffeurs in Uber and Lyft. Just for that I am uninstalling my Waze maps that I use with my Uber and Lyft. Unreal man. Here we are busting out as to give clean reliable and professional drivers so you can put possible victims in a would be criminals hands. I will be one of the ones who will push for this idea not to be adopted by the public. This is dangerous and you know it.
People trust in the fact that Uber and Lyft drivers go through background checks. We are out there so trust in us. Just like cab drivers you my have a bad experience but your a hell of. Lot safer with us than some random possible peeve or psychotic fool.
Only facebook and google 1/5
Add other ways to make an account!
Unauthorized payments 1/5
Since using this app I encountered multiple times getting falsely charged besides rides. When I reach Waze they say it’s not them however location and name of charge points to GOOGLEPLEX. I’d not recommend this
Drivers aren't notified 3/5
I have been using this app for past couple of days and have requested a ride to multiple people and none of them have declined or accepted the request.
I am not very sure if they are getting notified via email or in-app notification.
Não está funcionando Iphone 6s 1/5
O app não abre no iphone
Can’t sign in with Facebook 2/5
Everytime I try to sign in with FB, an error occurs. Seriously?
Doesn’t work 1/5
Just downloaded app and it wouldn’t even let me sign in due to a system error, so I deleted it. Better luck next time Waze!
Hey @Apple 5/5
By Costa, Luan
The app is amazing but curiously when I tap in the “payment” tab, there’s only “Pay with GooglePay” , on an iPhone?
Most buggy app ever 1/5
I used waze initially when it launched and it was not bad. I stopped using it for a while as I found scoop more useful and cheaper. But now when I’m trying to install waze again, it doesn’t even let me do anything. It crashes on almost every step mentioning some server error. Including setting destinations, setting your work email address or setting your commute times. When I get past all these errors by skipping the steps, it give a generic message of “server error” and takes me back to the login screen.
I fail to understand how a company like Google with so many resources and money can decide to ship such a broken product.
Sticking with Lyft 1/5
This trash is totally unreliable
Buggy and time consuming 3/5
This app is always bugging out on me. I get notifications but when I open the app there’s nothing there. I have trouble requesting rides all the time - an error pops up. Compared to Scoop it’s a way more confusing first time experience and requires a lot more work. You have to manually send requests (which is okay) but less ideal. The worst part is sometimes the walking distance is unreasonable for the price - and I’m right off the freeway so I can’t imagine for other people what it’s like. I only use this as a backup to Scoop which allows me to go door to door for a reasonable price.
Assumes you only have one job and go at the same time every day 1/5
Like an average young American worker, I have more than one job and they all have variable schedules. I am constantly commuting. I thought Waze carpool would be a great way to meet new people and save money on gas! Wrong! I can only set one work address, and I have to pre-set my work hours and the app then assumes they repeat every day. The only way I could use this app would be to change my work address and hours multiple times a day, which wouldn’t allow me or riders to plan ahead on meeting.
Waze carpooling is nice, app needs lots of improvements. 3/5
I love using Waze carpool but the app is constantly having the same issues over and over regardless of feedback and updates. I use it as a rider but my drivers frequently have issues too. The issues I’ve experienced:
1) unable to match with my driver even though we have our settings all matched, such as pickup/drop off time, location, and days. It’s usually just one or two days that we aren’t matching. Sometimes if one/both of us just keep “refreshing” in different ways it will eventually show us as a match.
2) service is down. Sometimes the entire app is just down so if you aren’t texting with your driver/rider neither of you will be able to connect. If you don’t have your rider/drivers number you’re out of luck.
3) unable to see where your driver’s car is on the map. Sometimes this is down so I can’t see where my driver is and their ETA isn’t updating in real time. Sometimes it will still send ETA updates though as pop up notifications thankfully! When I can see my drivers car, it is pretty slow.
4) adding a second rider is definitely not nailed down yet. This needed to have been tested out more. This isn’t explained well and we haven’t been able to figure out how to work the different addresses which makes being the second rider a challenge.
5) pick up and drop off spots are very random - sometimes in the middle of heavy traffic, and there isn’t a way to give feedback, which moves us to
6) the customer support needs a lot of improvement. Most of the time when I ask for help with something the response I get doesn’t address what I asked for or gives me little guidance.
I haven’t really seen improvements in the app but am hoping to as Waze carpool expands. I do use it frequently because I like it but would love to see changes in the app! I typically carpool with coworkers but have also met some other fun random people to carpool with and it makes my commute go much more quickly because I have somebody to chat with and we can use the carpool lanes. Overall - great idea. I hope it sticks.
Um lixo 1/5
Perdi quase 1 hora tentando configurar uma rota para conseguir uma carona. Muitos passos, complexo, nada intuitivo! Um lixo!
Invasive fraud 1/5
By yet another user 321
Collects all your information then tells you it's not available in your area. Should be illegal.
An okay app 3/5
Its a great app if it wasn’t for the fact that the app is not letting me set up payment method. An error keeps popping up.
How do one become a driver? There should be a button there somewhere to either want a ride (there is that) or to give a ride (can’t find this one) to make it easier. There should be a background checks on drivers too for safety.
All it says when I open the app in Houston, TX, is "Something went wrong. Try connecting again."
Awful for drivers 1/5
I am not sure about the ones who get rides, but for drivers, the app is awful!
The payment system is a mess. They are so disorganized now(maybe because they just launched it few weeks ago).
I don’t recommend at all.
You are only going to get stressed about the amount of e-emails, notifications, horrible functionality, the app freezes constantly.
If you want to get stressed before and after work, go further!
Not available in my area 1/5
By Tchase mke
Cities in which the service is available is not listed anywhere. I entered my home address and work address first, but then was required to complete the rest of my profile only to then be told the service is not yet available in Milwaukee. Would have been nice to know this before spending the additional time. Now going to delete my profile.
Update doesn’t work - doesn’t open the app 2/5
I gave 5 star earlier but recent new update doesn’t work. When I open the app it says to update which is already updated.
Plssssssssss fix the isssue ASAP.
App keeps logging me out and making me re sign up. 1/5
Please fix. I have a complicated commute schedule and I have to reset it every time I open the app. Please let me stay logged in. I am using an iPhone SE.
Great drivers, buggy app 4/5
Great drivers. More-reliable matching than Scoop. But the app is buggy and Google Pay is a pain. Keeps bugging out, constantly generates fraud alerts, et cetera.
Used to work before Feb 18 1/5
By Crappy do
The people writing this app have long lost focus. No proper addresses, most of the times gives some crazy address to the driver. Riders have to walk to some random points sometimes a freeway entry or exit for pickup. Too much constrained on the drivers route and tries to find an exact route match that doesn’t happen. Drivers have to wait after putting a request to riders and most of the times nobody responds because they already have other ride options. How do you guys come up with something like this?
App doesn’t function 1/5
By Rosemary Blossoms
Trying to book a ride without the app crashing on me a bunch of times and unable to proceed to next steps in the booking section. Can’t even book my ride.
Doesn’t launch 1/5
By Moses Lightning
Just updated. App crashes when opening.
It’s a ghost town - no one is using it 1/5
plenty of people signed up then never came back to the app. it’s a ghost town, shows people haven’t been back for 10 days or more. it could be a good app if they figured out how to get people back into it. it’s dead. ghost town, don’t waste your time.
Pain and frustration 1/5
What a great idea but the implementation is severely lacking. Relying on Google or Facebook to log in even if you already have a Waze account is minus one star even if the app was fully functional. The app crashes and gives incorrect data constantly. I have previously found drivers on my route and sent them requests, and then open the app to check if they have seen them the app either gives me the vague “something went wrong” message requiring me to ultimately restart the profile creation process or it tells me carpool is not available in my area (it definitely is and I’ve used it). The single ride I have actually gotten from a Wazer was great but I had to PayPal them because the app wouldn’t let them accept my ride request. Failure on so many levels.
App ruined after update 1/5
This app was perfect before the app refresh. Was easy to get rides. Very convenient. Now app is difficult to use, doesn’t work most of the time. Please revert back to previous version
I couldn’t do anything 4/5
It just kept telling me to try saving again. Forgot about it. Came back and it’s working now.
