What is uberPOOL?
uberPOOL is a carpooling option that matches riders heading in the same direction. With uberPOOL, riders still receive Uber-style on-demand convenience and reliability.
Since the early days of Uber, we’ve been excited about the idea of providing transportation so inexpensive and reliable, people can actually sell their cars. uberPOOL brings us one step closer to that vision.
On an uberX trip, you take your passenger to their destination and end the trip. Your next fare doesn’t start until another request comes through and you’ve picked up the new passenger.
With uberPOOL, you are earning on the way to each passenger pickup. You’re collecting a fare from the first pickup through the final drop-off, eliminating the unpaid period spent waiting for your next request and traveling to that pickup location.
