How Waze calculates your payment

This article is for drivers. If you're a rider, read this.

The price your riders pay goes toward your Carpool balance. The payment we calculate may change from time to time. You can find a ride's price in the Ride details screen before you choose to accept it.

Here's how it works

In the Ride details screen, tap to see the Price breakdown. The price is made up of a few things:

  • Ride – set by the distance of a rider's route from origin to destination
  • Number of riders – the price may go up when more riders join your ride
  • Service fee – currently waived

Two tips for increasing your Carpool balance

Tip #1: Add more riders to your carpool to save a bit more on commuting costs.

Tip #2: Invite your friends and get a cash gift when they complete a ride. Cash gifts go toward your Carpool balance. To invite friends, tap  in the top right corner of the calendar screen.
