App Reviews

  • Update should fix the app but it just made it worse!

    By ellieana24
    I have been using Waze Carpool for about half a year now and it was fine until that huge update on February! It made the app worst, it was the worst you will just get frustrated everytime you use it! Let me tell you why 1. Before it matches you with drivers walking distance from your house or your destination. Now it will match you with people at least a half a mile away from your house and will drop you off half a mile away from your work. 2. I already have 2 regular drivers who I carpooled with most of the time and even them hates the app, why? We can’t see each other anymore after the update, it just matches you with new people, we, the one who have been using the app for so long, they want us to became their guinea pig, they matches you with new people every single day. 3. You get pick up at stupid pick up points like for example there was many times it wants me to get pickup at a location two blocks away from my house when the driver would pass by my house first before the pickup location 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 4. There is always “internal errors”. Opening the app errors. Accepting the ride offer errors. Sending a request error. Messaging error. Submitting a review error. Even emailing them also has error, you complain but they give you like general message that has been copy paste from FAQ. No matter how cheap and efficient this is, if it keeps being a problem and a frustration everyday, its not worth it to use it.
  • Awful. I ended up late to work

    By irritated_rider99
    This app is terrible and riders beware. At first, it seemed good to use as an alternative to lyft or driving alone, and cheap. Riders can use Waze Carpool messenger to message the driver and vice versa. All seemed good so far as driver was picked and we messaged to each other about the destination. The next day, the only thing the driver messaged was he woke up late 10 minutes before pick up time. Then, no response. He didn’t bother to message or call me if he was still coming to pick me up while I am in the cold waiting until designated time. And once you click the “I am here” button, it doesn’t seem like you can cancel. Not to mention you cannot leave a review for drivers. I am sure if driver was on time and had no problems, it would be a great app to use. HOWEVER, if drivers or riders become a problem, it becomes a headache. My first impression and first non ride of Waze Carpool is terrible and I will just stick with commuting alone.
  • Good idea not well executed. Not enough users.

    By Tendrils
    There’s not enough drivers with this app. For anything to be really reliable. It’s also creepy to be a fem rider, I just good dudes hitting on me that know where I live. Yay! I found this weeks super awesome I think when they first launched it then overtime was pretty unreliable I think that was the decline of drivers. There’s a lot of bugs that happened recently with the update most of the drivers that normally would pick me up can’t even see my post I’m not entirely sure why that is they have it ever seem to fix that. Also the doing this new thing where you can add onto a ride but it’s like not in any timeframe that you posted. I heard that wasn’t issue you a couple updates ago with drivers actually been irritated with being bombarded by riders wanting rides outside of their timeframe. A lot of the drivers have had issues with understanding how to use the app. The customer service is pretty OK I’ll get back to you in an OK time frame but it doesn’t actually mean that the problem will actually get fixed. In fact it doesn’t normally. What I wonder is the does the team who develop this app actually use it to ride to work or … i’m guessing no.
  • Work in progress

    I wanted to use this app. Sounded like the perfect solution to long commutes that get expensive with current gas prices. I wanted to sign up as a driver. I live in Los Angeles, but I had no luck finding (same gender) passengers. Most of the passengers on the app were inactive (signed up and forgot about the app). The app itself was buggy. Although I was able to select the “ride” mode while using the carpool app, I wasn’t able to select the “drive” mode without the app switching to the main waze app. Would be helpful to have a messaging function with others. Also, when viewing other people’s profiles, their Facebook links were inactive. Waze carpool has a long way to go. Hope more people sign up for it and it works out!
  • Pain and frustration

    By hellojtm
    What a great idea but the implementation is severely lacking. Relying on Google or Facebook to log in even if you already have a Waze account is minus one star even if the app was fully functional. The app crashes and gives incorrect data constantly. I have previously found drivers on my route and sent them requests, and then open the app to check if they have seen them the app either gives me the vague “something went wrong” message requiring me to ultimately restart the profile creation process or it tells me carpool is not available in my area (it definitely is and I’ve used it). The single ride I have actually gotten from a Wazer was great but I had to PayPal them because the app wouldn’t let them accept my ride request. Failure on so many levels.
  • Awful update. Please fix it

    By jryoo
    I’ve been using this app for few months and I loved it. However, with the latest update, I am unable to request a ride for a specific driver. I’ve been pooling with the same guy for 6+ months, and now we don’t see each other from the list and are both struggling. We even tried to put the exact same pick up/drop off address to see if we could see each other from the list but this didn’t work. Now I see a bunch of drivers who are just not responding. Please fix this.
  • Buggy and time consuming

    By changtp
    This app is always bugging out on me. I get notifications but when I open the app there’s nothing there. I have trouble requesting rides all the time - an error pops up. Compared to Scoop it’s a way more confusing first time experience and requires a lot more work. You have to manually send requests (which is okay) but less ideal. The worst part is sometimes the walking distance is unreasonable for the price - and I’m right off the freeway so I can’t imagine for other people what it’s like. I only use this as a backup to Scoop which allows me to go door to door for a reasonable price.
  • Bad idea

    By Dark UnHoly
    No background checks. This is a recipe for a disaster. Now another bulgur way to take away money from real chauffeurs in Uber and Lyft. Just for that I am uninstalling my Waze maps that I use with my Uber and Lyft. Unreal man. Here we are busting out as to give clean reliable and professional drivers so you can put possible victims in a would be criminals hands. I will be one of the ones who will push for this idea not to be adopted by the public. This is dangerous and you know it. People trust in the fact that Uber and Lyft drivers go through background checks. We are out there so trust in us. Just like cab drivers you my have a bad experience but your a hell of. Lot safer with us than some random possible peeve or psychotic fool.
  • Buggy app

    By jackrinjames
    Took multiple tries to be able to successfully request a ride, I kept getting an "uh oh, internal error" message. I finally get through and later I got a ride pickup confirmation. This morning I go to the pickup spot and waited 15 minutes. I ended up having to call an Uber because he was late. I tried messaging him but the app kept giving me a error message again and then I tried called him but the app wouldn't let me place a call. Later the driver on his end said that the app told him that I had cancelled the ride last night. So many problems with this app I would not use again. In theory it's great because the rides are cheaper than Uber but the app needs to get itself together.
  • Most buggy app ever

    By Uzzzman
    I used waze initially when it launched and it was not bad. I stopped using it for a while as I found scoop more useful and cheaper. But now when I’m trying to install waze again, it doesn’t even let me do anything. It crashes on almost every step mentioning some server error. Including setting destinations, setting your work email address or setting your commute times. When I get past all these errors by skipping the steps, it give a generic message of “server error” and takes me back to the login screen. I fail to understand how a company like Google with so many resources and money can decide to ship such a broken product.
