Waze, a trendsetter in carpooling is on its way to allow its riders to hitch a ride.

Google owned Waze is gaining ground in giving a chance to carpool riders of the Bay Area to test Waze. More than 25,000 people will be able to hitch a ride with Waze drivers.

Users sharing the same Waze commute will be able to request a ride but something not to forget is that we need to download the free app Waze Rider first.

More than 70,000 Bay Area users of the app can profit from the opportunity, according to San Francisco Chronicle. Collaboration is build up between a driver and a rider.

The users of this App can help in letting these riders know about the traffic jam or car accidents in advance. UCSF, Adobe and Walmart Global E-commerce have always been really close to Waze and that is why it has chosen it to be its partner.

Rates of the rides are on the basis of cents per mile and this is kept standard. A few people are enjoying the benefits of carpooling as it is difficult to gather enough people to fit the car’s interior space.

According to Shaheen , co-director of UC Berkeley Transportation Sustainability Research Centre, the exchange of money is an odd task which has arisen concerns in addition to the safety concerns.

Lyft, Uber, South Bay and other such companies are planning to enlarge their carpooling services ensuring larger numbers of carpool drivers.

Carma and Scoop are also carpooling apps but aren’t any match for Waze. Technology has helped in gaining social and environmental benefits, yet carpooling isn’t as much of a triumph as it could have been.
