You have scheduled your trip and saw that you had some drivers that matched your route and departure time. Maybe you even sent a ride request to one or two drivers. What now? Are you already set for your carpool?
Not yet, but you're very close!
In order for you to be sure that you have secured a seat in someone else's car, the best way to to that is by talking directly to the driver themselves, but the app will also show you some visual hints to help you make sure. Nevertheless, we recommend that you always use the "Chat" feature of the app to confirm a seat with your potential driver(s).
Here are the different ways in which you can know that a driver has shown intent of carpooling with you:
Via chat messaging
You have sent a chat message to a potential driver (or the other way around) and they confirmed via message that they will have a free seat for you and will pick you up for your carpool together. Done! 🥳
You sent a ride request to the driver and they accepted it
After scheduling your trip, you sent a ride request to a driver (1st and 2nd images below) and, after checking it, the driver accepted your request. You will now see a green "Confirmed" for the trip that you have selected (3rd image below). We recommend that you still message the driver to make sure you're both in sync regarding your carpool's starting time and place.
As soon as the driver accepts your request, we'll let you know via push notification. Please make sure to allow Wunder to send you those, so that you won't miss a ride!
The driver sent you a ride offer and you accepted it
You scheduled your trip but didn't make a ride request straight away. Shortly after, you receive a notification on your phone telling you that a driver has offered you a seat in their car! 😄 In order to let the driver know that you are interested in joining their carpool, simply "Accept" their ride offer (1st image below). You will then see a green "Confirmed" for the that trip (2nd image below).We recommend that you still message the driver to make sure you're both in sync regarding your carpool's starting time and place.
As soon as a driver sends you a ride offer, we'll let you know via push notification. Please make sure to allow Wunder to send you those, so that you won't miss a ride!
Happy carpooling! 🚗
