Got questions?

How much extra money do I get for auto-approved rides?

You get a fixed amount of extra money for each rider that joins your auto-approved ride.

The amount varies by location. To see how much you get per rider:

  1. Tap a day & time
  2. Turn on Auto-approve – your payment will be recalculated
  3. Tap i next to "Total payment" to see how much you get for auto-approved riders

Note: You only get extra money when riders join on their own, not when you invite them (see section below). So sit back and relax while riders join.

I can't turn on Auto-approve

If you cancel auto-approved rides – or remove riders – too often, the feature will be temporarily unavailable. This is in accordance with our cancelation policy.

I don't see Auto-approve

Only drivers who’ve carpooled before can see the Auto-approve switch. Drive a carpool without Auto-approve first to see this option.

I turned on Auto-approve but didn't get extra money when a rider joined

You do not get extra money if you turn on Auto-approve and then actively invite riders to join your ride.

You only get extra money when you turn it on, and then riders join your carpool on their own. So sit back and relax while riders join.
