Work in progress
I wanted to use this app. Sounded like the perfect solution to long commutes that get expensive with current gas prices. I wanted to sign up as a driver. I live in Los Angeles, but I had no luck finding (same gender) passengers. Most of the passengers on the app were inactive (signed up and forgot about the app).
The app itself was buggy. Although I was able to select the “ride” mode while using the carpool app, I wasn’t able to select the “drive” mode without the app switching to the main waze app. Would be helpful to have a messaging function with others. Also, when viewing other people’s profiles, their Facebook links were inactive.
Waze carpool has a long way to go. Hope more people sign up for it and it works out!
Spoke too soon...
I honestly thought I would love this app. Upon downloading it I’d already received $30 in Ride credits and found many drivers who matched my route. I thought I had hit the carpool jackpot. Until it actually came to using the app. You have to send requests to drivers on the same route as you, with a time and pickup/drop off spot that are convenient. The first time I sent a request to a driver 2 days before I needed the ride. The driver declined the request. Ok, surely I could contact the other matches. None have responded. I checked their profiles, and it seems all of the drivers who I have matched with (including the one who rejected riding with me) are new drivers themselves and are either inactive or not really ready to ride other people. Even as I tried changing my route destination to get more available drivers, 90% of the drivers just didn’t respond to my request at all. It’s been 2 weeks since my last request. I now feel discouraged to ride with WAZE since the ride credits will expire soon and I have not been able to communicate with a single driver
I downloaded this app in January, 2019. Been checking faithfully to join carpools, sending inquiry messages regularly (as many as 30 per week since the app recommends you ask daily for rides). Have gotten only a single response in nearly 9 months and that was “no, I don’t go that way - not sure why Waze Carpool indicated I did.” I even set up a group seeking other riders in hopes of establishing a new carpool. Nada. Zip. Zilch. I don’t entirely blame the app; those seeking riders could be more responsive to those of us seeking drivers. But the algorithm the app uses to “match” drivers with riders doesn’t seem to be entirely accurate either. So, after nearly 9 months of use, I am deleting the app and counting it a lesson learned, albeit a disappointing one. I do not typically use “social” apps, but now I know the “networking” aspect of social apps is entirely dependent on the willingness of its participants to actually NETWORK, making this apps daily reminder to ask for rides... worthless. Forced to give the app one star to post this review, otherwise would have rated it NO stars.
