It seems like every week UBER is coming up with another
gimmick new service. Well, this week, it’s uberPOOL, a shared car-ride service, and uberPOOL has launched in NYC as the third city to offer this service (San Francisco and Paris are the first two cities to offer uberPOOL)
It sounds pretty straightforward
HOW TO POOL
uberPOOL relies on the same convenient, safe, and reliable Uber ride you know and love.
- Request: Select uberX and toggle on uberPOOL. Set your pick up location and destination.
- Ride: You may be matched with another rider traveling along a similar route.
- Relax: Sit back and save—if matched you’ll pay up to 50% less!
WHEN: uberPOOL is available 24/7, starting today
WHERE: The 5 boroughs
WHO: Each request may have a maximum of 2 riders per pickup. You will be matched with one other requester, for up to 4 riders total.
COST: When sharing your ride, you’ll save anywhere from 20 – 50% depending on the route. When unmatched, you’ll pay the normal uberX rate.
Note: You must update your Uber app to the newest version in order to ride with uberPOOL.
FREE!!!!!!!!!! This week, through December 21, 2014, uberPool has a FREE OFFER:
RIDE FREE WITH uberPOOL THIS WEEK
This week only, request your first uberPOOL ride and get $20 off your trip. No need to apply a promo code, the discount will be applied automatically to your fare before December 21.
As far as I’m concerned, there is simply no reason NOT to take advantage of this uberPOOL promotion.
If you don’t have an UBER account, you can sign up with my referral code and we both get a free $20 credit (in addition to your free uberPOOL ride). It would be awesome if you use my REFERRAL LINK.
