          • Communication

            As a driver, I would love to be able to communicate with/send a message to all people in my car via the carpool site. I think that now, I have to look for their email addresses, copy those, recompile them in an email program, and THEN I can send a message. Seems unnecessarily cumbersome.

            • Meeting place and drop off location

              Rather than someone's address, which may or may not have easy parking, meeting at one of the BART stations would be accessible to more people, who may not have a car.
              It’s free on Saturday.

              • Find carpools from/to desired destinations

                There is a site called zimride.com that use to cater to the public and now monetized their site by only selling their service to companies and universities. It use to allow the public to organize carpools from and to desired destinations. For example, many people drive to/from Lake Tahoe from the San Francisco Bay Area on weekends. So you could search for rides from and to your desired destination. It was great and I used it a dozen times before they shut it down to the public. I met lots of great people, had company for long drives, shared expenses,…

                • Differentiate

                  I find the site difficult.
                  I would differentiate from the start whether the viewer is a rider or a driver. ADD could mean add a car, add myself to a ride, or ... ?
                  Join could mean that same, ie I'm joining as a driver or a rider.
                  Maybe it's just me but I'm not navigating this system very easily, particularly is I'm dealing with me (driver USUALLY) and my son (rider always).

                  • Common departure location

                    Set up carpool that auto-fills the departure destination so everyone meets at the same place

                      • Make the text less confusing

                        It's unclear which link to click if I need a ride vs. which link to click if I want to provide rides. The link should be a no-brainer, like "I need a ride" and "I want to provide rides".

                        I clicked "Join Waitlist", which I assume means I need a ride. The fields to fill out are also confusing. Do I give the address from which I'm travelling (which could be anywhere in the world) or the address from which I need the ride?

                          • additional field for type of rower

                            Can we add to the wait list whether the person is varsity or novice as it helps in determining carpools.

                                I signed up to give rides. I see three figures in green - Have people signed up? I see no emails directed to me, and have received no phone calls for rsvp. The process needs to be clearer and more definite.

                                • I just put my name into the carpool, but will want to accept a ride in case no one wants one from me.

                                  Make it possible to notify another driver (Erica of Berkeley in this case) of this circumstance.

                                      • Schedule grid

                                        I'm trying to find drivers for a daily schedule. I would like a simple grid showing taken vs available times, kind of like MealTrain does it. (Use case: I'm organizing daily drives for a handicapped friend to get home from his hydrotherapy. Each person on the list should be able to see if he needs a ride on a given day, what days are already taken care of, and what slots need to be filled.)

                                        • Organizer should be able to edit and delete carpools

                                          Should have a feature like Doodle, which allows the organizer to edit and delete participant responses. I added a carpool of my own to the list, but then there's no way for me to even edit or delete my own entry.

                                          I understand that it could challenging to allow all users to edit their entries, but they could contact the organizer, then the organizer could make necessary changes.
