San Francisco CA — Waze, the popular crowdsourced traffic and navigation free app has announced that Waze Carpool is expanding from its San Francisco trial to service all of California beginning June 6, 2017.
Waze Carpool connects drivers and riders with similar destinations to commute together on the most optimal routes. Drivers earn gas money and riders enjoy uninterrupted service without picking up other passengers. These are not drivers for hire but everyday Waze users making the most of a trip already planned. Waze Carpool empowers Wazers to help each other have an easier, greener, more affordable commute.
Following thriving public pilots in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, Monterey and across Israel, the expansion is a sign of the company’s deepening commitment to its Carpool platform. The move is a natural one for Waze, a community-first organization on a mission to impact global mobility and congestion. Earlier this year, we also announced our intention to bring Waze Carpool to Brazil later in 2017.
