When you want the cheapest ride, uberPOOL is the option for you. uberPOOL matches you with riders heading in the same direction, so you can share your ride and the cost.
How to ride in an uberPOOL
Open the app and enter your destination in the ‘Where to’ box. Once you confirm your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select ‘uberPOOL’ at the bottom of your screen. Then, tap ‘Request uberPOOL’.
You’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map.
Share your ride
We match you with riders heading in the same direction. You can track your driver on his or her way to you. Hop in when they arrive. There’s a maximum of 2 riders per pickup, up to 4 co-riders total.
Simply exit the car when you reach your destination. We’ll automatically charge the fare to the payment method you have on file.
- Is there room for my luggage?
Yes, but the amount of available space depends on the car and number of riders.
- How long will it take to pick up another rider?
Pickup should be quick. On average, riding with UberPOOL adds only a few minutes to your overall ride time.
- I was picked up first. Why was I dropped off second?
Pickup and drop-off order is determined by where your destination falls along the route, not the order of who was picked up first.
