Set your route & schedule

This article is for riders. If you're a driver, read this.


Set or change your route & schedule to make sure you only get matched with relevant drivers.

I have a pretty fixed commute schedule

Set your default route & schedule for each day of the week:
  1. Open Waze Carpool
  2. Tap Settings and then Schedule
  3. Tap a day of the week & time to:
    • edit your "to" and "from" addresses
    • edit your pickup time window
  4. Turn the switch off if you don't want to carpool on that day – you won't appear in drivers' match lists or get ride offers
Tip: If your route or schedule changes on the fly, you can always edit them directly from the calendar screen. See below.

My commute schedule is unpredictable

If you have a flexible schedule, you can update your route & pickup times from the calendar screen:

  1. Open Waze Carpool
  2. Tap the day & time you want to carpool 
  3. Tap the pencil icon in the top right corner
  4. Set the addresses and times
  5. Tap Save
Tip: You can set a weekly scheduling reminder so you won't forget to update your route & pickup times for the coming week.
