A Win-Win for Carpoolers




Waze Carpool has introduced a pilot program to the Dallas-Fort Worth area allowing commuters to utilize Waze Carpool for a flat rate of $2. Waze will pay for the three-month pilot or up to $50,000 in monetary incentives, whichever comes first.

The North Central TX Council of Governments (NCTCOG) and Try Parking It, the region’s ride-matching and commute-tracking website, have partnered with Waze to allow carpoolers to log commutes to earn points that can be used to enter contests, purchase rewards and earn milestone prizes.

The Waze Carpool app is available for Apple and Android devices. It allows passengers that wish to carpool with a Waze driver to request a ride. The carpool app is separate from the Waze Navigation app. Riders chip in to cover the cost of gas. The result is that passengers get an affordable and convenient ride, while drivers get gas money and enough passengers to use carpool lanes.
