Waze Carpool Matching

UCI Transportation is excited to provide new carpool benefits to the campus community through Waze Carpool, the latest on-demand carpool matching service. Unlike ride-hailing services, Waze Carpool is dedicated to eliminating excessive vehicle use and reducing trips on the road. The app, available for Android and iOS, may be used to find carpool matches for both drivers and riders. As a driver, you may post your daily commute to match with UCI riders and get paid gas money. As a rider, you just pay for the cost of the ride.
