Ask for a ride

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

 

You can see drivers on your home-to-work route and ask them for a ride.

  1. Open Waze Carpool
  2. Tap a day & time you want to carpool
  3. See a list of drivers on your route

Note:

  • Drivers with a blue lightning bolt can be booked instantly – you won't have to wait for them to confirm. The price is slightly higher.
  • Drivers with a bus icon will pick you up or drop you off from a transit station. You can complete the journey with public transportation.

  2. Finalize the ride's details, and the tap Ask for a ride and then Ask

Didn't find what you're looking for?

Turn on Keep searching for drivers at the top of the match list. Waze will keep searching for drivers for you, and will notify you when one is found. (Note: This is available to some users in some countries only.)

Increase your chances of booking a ride by repeating the steps above with more drivers.

Drivers get notified when you ask them. It typically takes around 2 hours for a driver to respond.

When a driver accepts, you’ll get a notification.
