King County Metro has teamed up with carpooling apps, Waze Carpool and Scoop, to make it easier and more affordable for commuters to share rides. Through this program, for a limited time, participating riders will be able to earn discounts and drivers will be able to earn incentives when carpooling via these apps. Users can participate by downloading the Waze Carpool or Scoop app, where they enter trip details, get matched, and book rides. Waze rides cost a flat rate of $2 for trips starting or ending in King County, and drivers can earn up to $0.54/mile. Scoop ride costs and driver benefits are variable but viewable when booking. King County Metro hopes that this partnership will facilitate shared mobility and help reduce congestion.
