How to use Waze Carpool
Getting ride offers
People on your home-to-work route will see your profile and can ask to carpool with you. Accept or decline - it’s up to you.
When you get a ride offer
You’re notified - You get a notification on your phone that a driver wants to ride with you. Tap the request to see a commute window and other ride details (if another rider accepts the ride or the driver cancels the offer, then the ride request no longer appears).
Check the ride details - See the driver’s profile, the price, and the suggested date, time, and route
Messages - You and the potential driver can chat directly through the app
Next, choose to accept or decline the offer
Accept - When its time to head to the pickup spot, Waze Carpool will remind you with a notification
Decline - Not available? Tap Decline. There’s no penalty for declining a ride. The driver will no longer see the option to carpool with you for this ride, but can send you another request in the future.
