Here’s a little story from a new user who ended up setting a record for the WeGo Sonoma community when he took his first ride with 4 other people. Fantastic — experiences like these make us smile!
I know that this is supposed to be a kind of social network for people trying to share rides along their commute, but as a regular bus rider, my need for WeGo and the Avego app are more circumstantial, more in response to an emergency. Such was the case the other day. I was supposed to make it to Rohnert Park from my home in North Santa Rosa in time to, of all things, take my car to the dealership for a check-up and missed the bus.
I checked the Avego app and there was a ride going there, but not until a half-hour too late. I sent a message, asking if the ride could be moved up a bit and after some back and forth we reached an agreement. I rode with four others in the car and arrived safely at my destination, and made my appointment on time. WeGo Sonoma saved the day for me!
