Create or join a group of carpoolers

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

 

Carpoolers can create groups and invite people they want to carpool with regularly, like coworkers, classmates, gym buddies, and more. Anyone can create a group, and the group can be of any size.

Once you’re a member of a group, you can:

  • Offer rides to members on your route
  • Invite others to join the group

 

Tip: You can get cash gifts when you invite new people to a group and they take two rides with Waze Carpool.

Anyone can create a group. Here’s how:

  1. Open Waze and tap Carpool
