Most commonly co-travellers need to share their location. It would be nice if they can do it through app itself. It'll add more value from bla bla car. Driver can just set the gps for dropped pin n pick up people. Also a planned route feature can be added so travellers can book most convenient routes according to nearest pick up or drop points.
The app is amazing. It's a win win for both parties. This is one of the first where I am getting benefited as a car owner by saving travel cost at the same time helping fellow travelers who are in need of.
I found it disgusting that the app sets price limits for MY rides. I have to call paasangers and explain each time that the real price is higher. So cancel thinking that I am using some dirty tricks
The app was useful to get the rides. Now getting "Unexpected error. Try again" message while opening the application with the recent update.
For car sharing there is no alternative but it's fine when the only way is this good.
I find the last version very disappointing for the following reasons: 1. It automatically selects known / recommended locations which are within 350 m range of the point I write as departure. It already happened to me a few times that I was waiting at the place I put as departure and my passengers were at the location which the app choose automatically. In my case, through the Brussels traffic, it was a good 30 minutes ride (the traffic is literally jammed in that area) and a good 20 minutes walking for the passengers between the location automatically selected and the meeting point I mentioned. I would recommended that the app asks the drivers if they would like to choose another location, showing a list of available preffered locations which are close-by and more suitable than the one filled in by the driver, rather than to insert it automatically. 2. The new app automatically sets for the return trip a price which is different from the one for the outbound trip, without informing the driver. In my case the price the app displayed for the return trip was half the price for the outbound trip. I recommend that this should be given as an option to the driver, and should not be automatically decided. 3. The new app apparently has a maximum price for some trips. For this reason I do not put online as many trips as I used to put before as for some trips the money I would get are not worth to motivate me spending my time and effort to put the trip online and to spend time to pick up the passengers. The new price limits combined with the effort to check if the departure and arrival points are the ones I really meant and the fact that the return trip has a different price than the outbound one make it worthless for me to waste the time to put the trip online. For the above reasons, even if I still commute daily, I do not put anymore the daily trips, but only seldom, maybe 4-5 times per month. I hope the blablacar team will revert to the old app which I found much better than this new updated one.
In this version of BlaBlaCar, we've made a few tweaks and done a bit of fine-tuning to make the app even easier to use!
