Waze To Launch Carpool Program in Israel

The popular Israeli navigation app Waze is launching a pilot carpooling program in Israel.

Waze, which Google purchased for $1 billion in 2013, is testing the new application, RideWith, in the greater Tel Aviv area, Reuters reported.

RideWith will use the Waze navigation system to learn the routes drivers take to work and pair them with people looking for a ride to the same areas. The commuter would pay the driver a small fee for gas.

Eventually the pilot program will be broadened to include all of Israel, Haaretz reported.

The program reportedly will be limited to two rides per day and drivers will not be able to earn a living doing it.

It is not known when Google will expand the app outside of Israel.
