A mobile application for carpooling developed by Waze, a Google company. Waze Riderlearns frequent routes taken by Waze app users (such as daily commutes to/from work) to match drivers with passengers heading the same direction. The app allows a driver to take passengers only on his/her regular commute, for up to two journeys a day, and charge a modest fee to passengers to split costs of gas and vehicle wear and tear. Those restrictions differentiate Waze Rider from taxi services. Therefore, Waze Rider offers a paid carpooling service that is more likely to be accepted by legislators who argue that only commercial licensed drivers may transport passengers to turn a profit. Also, those restrictions help limit the number of vehicles on the road to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions. The company started testing the app (originally named "RideWith") in the greater Tel Aviv area in July 2015.
