Waze has been testing their ride sharing service called Waze Rider in Bay Area of California and Israel. For California, the entirety of the state can now give it a try. This could be a sign that things are going well.
Waze Rider is the carpooling service from Google's own Waze application that has been limited to the Bay Area so far. A new report from The Wall Street Journal claims this service will be expanded to "several US cities" as well as Latin America over the next few months.
Google has been privately testing their Waze Rider ride-sharing service to select employees in the Bay Area. It's now been confirmed that Waze Rider is available to the public for those who live in San Francisco.
Google and Waze's ride sharing service could be launching soon. The service was originally revealed as RideWith in 2015, but the app is now showing up as Waze Rider, and a trademark for the name has also been filed. It's possible Waze could be looking to launch the service on a wider scale soon.
