How do I repeat a carpool? (mobile)

Setting up a repeating carpool is just like creating a regular ride. The only difference is that you will invite another family in addition to selecting your rider(s) and toggle "repeat this ride" on. Start by opening your app and tapping the "Schedule a Ride" button. 


Select "My family + our carpool" 


Choose a date for your ride and click the "Next" button.

 You can scroll the hour and minute to set the time of your ride. Be sure you've selected the correct time of day, AM or PM. Then click the "Next" button.


Select up to 3 riders from your family.


You can now select an existing carpool family or add a new one. To add a new one press on "Add Carpool Family".


You'll need to give the app access to your contacts. This access will ONLY be used to send your invitation and is never stored anywhere. Select the families you want to invite and click "Invite". Be sure your contacts list the cell phone number of the person you're inviting. All invites are sent through text notification.


Complete the rest of your ride setup as usual. Keep in mind that the carpool family will add their own rider's details. Invites will be sent after you schedule the ride. When you get to the review screen toggle "Repeat this ride" on, select the days you would like it to repeat and set the end date. 

The people you invite will receive a text message with a link. They can either click on a link, invited will receive a text message with a link to the invite, which they can accept in the HopSkipDrive app. 


If they have an account setup, the carpool invite will be the first thing they see. If they haven't used HopSkipDrive before, all they have to do is setup an account and they will then see the invitation. 

Once they accept the ride, they can select the riders they want to participate and the pickup/drop off location (if it differs from the other riders). When all of your invitees accept or deny your invitation you'll be notified through text message.
