Waze Carpool Expands to More States
Google has made its Waze Carpool service available to a handful more states around the country. The service has been in testing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2016 and is now available in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Washington, and Wisconsin. Waze Carpool lets people find rides from nearby Waze users. People can select carpoolers based on profiles, ratings, and filters. While carpooling, Waze users are eligible to use HOV lanes, and will always be guided via the fastest route. Waze also pitches the service as a way to cut down on commuting costs for riders and a way to earn gas money for drivers. The app is free to download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.
