You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Take it down until you fix the most critical issues

    This ride-share site is a joke! Not only only does it list your email address and phone number in plain text for spammers to help themselves to, but ANYONE can click on "edit" on any listing and modify it at will!

    • A way to remove a car

      • help the driver know what is going on

        I had 5 people sign up for a ride, but two of them didn't contact me. The app doesn't provide contact information to the driver. I am going to leave 2 people wondering where their ride is.

        • Show more 'details text' by default

          It only shows a few words of details – it'd be nice if by default the cars showed at least a full sentence worth (letting it scroll across the screen on desktop). It's annoying to have to click on each car to find out the details.

          • Slightly smaller icons

            The car icons are a bit big, which makes it hard to see lots of cars at a glance.

            • Display summary of all departing and returning

              Have a list of names of all departing riders and all returning riders to be able to check if everyone is signed up and if there are any missing departing or returning riders.

              • Make the "taken" car slots more distinct from the empty ones

                light grey and light-green makes it a bit hard to tell which cars are full. I think a darker color for the taken slots would be easier to parse.

                • Email privacy

                  Have some way of not displaying the email addresses raw on the site. At least let us put an @ in the display!

                    • Limit the number of people who can join a car

                      The number of available seats is useless if more people can join the car.

                      • Order carpools by location

                        It would be helpful to see all carpools by driver location. The easiest way to do this would be to show carpools alphabetically by location.

                        • Sort protocols for the list

                          It would be helpful to sort the list in terms of return trip time, too, and it would be helpful if full cars were all displayed at the top or bottom.

                          • Tell us who is in the carpool

                            I created a carpool and received an email about someone joining it, However, the webpage does not show me that someone has joined with me.

                            • Email others

                              I'd like to be able to click on someone's name and email them, either within the site or through my own email.

                              Also, I'd like to be able to message the whole group / add everyone to one email so we can coordinate.

                              • Editing Information

                                Allow me to change the Event Title after I've created a carpool. Allow me to insert additional information about the event in the header such as logo or branding of organization's event and/or reminders of the date time and location of the event. Allow people to upload their proof of driver's insurance for only the event organizer to view. Especially relevant for non profit organizations who are navigating liability by recommending this app.

                                      • 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.
