    "Recently just discovered BlaBlaCar...The first time i used this was when i was in New York and i was having a hard time to find a cab and Uber was too expensive due to the surcharge. So yeah i tried it and found out that it is cheaper than taxing a cab nor Uber. Now i am thinking of using this app too as a driver so when i drive somewhere i won't be bored and be talking the one who is carpooling with me."

    "Since i am trying to save money i wanted to start carpooling on my way to work...Through this i can basically just look for people who are going in the same way where i am going to and then with that i can earn some cash. Isn't that amazing? This has def helped me to save up money and earn a little bit. "

    "NGL i did not know that the developers of Waze have created this one especially targetted to those who want to save money by carpooling. Definitely one of the best alternatives to Lyft. However, what i do not like about this is that you cannot leave a review to the drivers. I hope they will implement that soon eh."

    "I have been using this for less than a year already and so far it works pretty well on my end. I could have given this a higher rating but there are some stuff that i think needs some improvements like setting up a carpool ride is a bit confusing, you cant remove a child whose no longer partcipating in the carpool. But all in all this app does it jobs. COme to think of it there arent that many carpool apps especifically made for children."

    "Just so you know Lyft is redesigning its Lyft Line feature on its app and it will now call it as Shared Riders this is to encourage strangers t take more trips together. Well for me i have been using Lyft Line ever since bc the fare is cheaper compared to the usual Lyft."
