How to use Waze Carpool

Requesting rides

To request a ride, open Waze Carpool, and in each upcoming ride time:

  1. See drivers on your route grouped by how long it takes you to walk to the pickup and drop-of spots

  2. Look through their profiles, star ratings, common connections, and the price of the ride

  3. Choose the driver you want to carpool with by tapping their profile photo

  4. In the Ride request screen, finalize the ride details and tap Request ride

  5. Confirm the request by tapping Send

  6. Your request is sent to the driver, who’s automatically notified. Send your request to multiple drivers by repeating the steps above.

  7. After your request is sent to a driver, their photo appears with a blue clock at the top of the screen

  8. If you get a ride offer for this commute, you see a photo of the person who offered it at the top of the screen


You can also request a ride from all the drivers on the list at once:

  1. Open Waze Carpool

  2. Tap your next commute window

  3. To select all the drivers, tap , (If you want to remove a driver from your selection, tap their photo), and then tap Send requests

  4. In the confirmation window, tap Send

  5. Your request is sent and all selected drivers are automatically notified

The more requests you send, the more chances you’ll have to carpool with people on your route.


Not riding home tomorrow? Go ahead and mute Carpool for that specific commute window.

  1. At the top of the screen, switch to Mute

  2. People won't be able to contact you for rides during that commute window. To get ride offers, simply switch back to Ride.
