Getting ride requests

People on your route will see your profile and can ask you to carpool. Accept or decline - it’s up to you.

When you get a ride request

  • You’re notified - You get a notification to your device that a rider wants to ride with you. Tap the request to see the commute window with the ride details. (If another driver accepts the ride or the rider cancels the request, then the ride request no longer appears.)     

  • Check ride details - See the rider’s profile, the suggested date, time and route, and the price. If you need to, you can change the pickup and drop-off spots.

  • Messages - You and the potential rider can chat directly through the app


Next, choose to accept or decline the request

  • Accept - Waze Carpool will remind you when it’s time to head to the pickup spot

  • Decline - Not available? Tap Decline. There’s no penalty for declining a ride. The rider will no longer see the option to carpool with you for this ride.
