Carma Carpooling matches you with nearby people who want to share trips. You can browse profiles, send messages and even invite friends, neighbors or colleagues if you don’t find any matches nearby.
What’s cool is the cost of the drive gets shared also - riders pay roughly $0.20 per mile via automatic in-app transfers. The rider just taps ‘start trip’ when they hop in, and ‘end trip’ when they hop out.
Carma is the world’s only verified carpool app, which means we keep a log of all completed trips for your safety.

They ask for money first...
Frankly, I hven't really had a chance to use it. I selected a potential route for which I might need a ride, and the app told me it had a value of eighty-some dollars, but I only had ten dollars credit in my account. In order to see if anyone was offering a ride, it wanted me to add the requisite amount to my account first. NO WAY! That's not a good model, pay first, find ride second. If I find a ride I'm interested in, and I've contacted the driver and everything seems kosher, then maybe I'd add money to my account. But not from the get-go.
There are better programs out there
I was extremely disappointed in this app. I gave it 2 stars because it's a good concept, but poorly executed. The app takes quite a bit of money out of each payment, and when you calculate milage, price of gas, and other costs of driving, the amount Carma calculated per trip is inaccurate. Plus getting your money from the app is extremely difficult! You're better off using ride share and/or find your own carpool and pay them with venmo/cash.
Cut my commute in half!
A cool way to find other people who have a similar commute, organize trips and get access to the HOV lane.
