Has anyone used Waze Carpool yet?

In SF, have a job interview down in Mountain View and the cost on Waze Carpool was estimated as less than my Uber/Lyft to current job in SF.

How the fuck does someone without driver's license (NYC born & raised) commute without giving up hours of their life to public transpo.

    Yes, I use it sometimes. It works pretty well in South Bay. The only issue is that drivers are not punctual, they tend to arrive either late or early. But it's cheap and if you are flexible with your time, it's a good and cheap alternate to Uber/Lyft.

      Scale of 1-10, how creepy was it? Also a lady, so trying to make sure I don't get murdered.

      Regular folks. Nothing creepy, same as lyft or uber. I would rate it 8.

      I meant that 10 was maximum creep, but I hope you meant the opposite...

      Cheaper, more reliable. Only available during commute hours though, and usually you have to book 6ish hours in advance

      Scoop really sucks in my area. Usually plan trips that takes an extra 30 mins in my hour long (in traffic) commutes. Probably due to low user base, but it’s been like that for a year so I kinda lost hope for it.

    Waze Carpool works very well.. I'm on my 50th ride. I've met great people, had great conversations and it def makes the commute better (not creepy at all and I can vet drivers by ratings, email verification, fb, linkedin, etc when I select a ride).

    Open it up and see if any drivers have offered rides close to you and if not, request one! If you request with time you'll prob find a good match for a quarter of the price of UberPool/Lyft Line.

    While I drive, I prefer waze. Scoop's assigned route discourages me to drive for it again. Their algorithm sucks or may be they have less users. Waze is flexible.
    While riding, again waze! Its flexible.

    Waze carpool is cheaper than uber. It's basically matches riders going to and from work. You complete your profile/driving directions and waze will match you with riders going that direction.

    How/who determines how much the rider contributes?

      Website said it was set per mile. Like paying for gas.
      Aug 4, 2017

      It's 56 cents per mile so that you don't have to file taxes showing the income from it. 56 cents per mile is IRS limit for commute expenses.

    Most scale would rate 10 as great and not the other way round
