Meet uberHOP—A New Way to Commute

Friday, July 29 will mark the last day of service for uberHOP in Toronto. After running this pilot for nearly 7 months, we’ve learned a ton that will shape how we design and develop our carpooling option—uberPOOL. Since January, many Torontonians have been relying on uberPOOL for an affordable, door-to-door commute. By making it easy and affordable for commuters to carpool, we can get more people into fewer cars and help reduce congestion and pollution in Toronto.


Meet uberHOP—a new option that lets you share your trip with other commuters along Toronto’s most popular routes during peak hours. uberHOP will be available along fixed routes for a flat fare ranging from $3.50 to $4.50. 

Uber launched in Toronto in February 2012, and since then, we’ve been excited about the idea of providing the most reliable and inexpensive transportation options. With uberHOP, we hope that Torontonians will rely more on ridesharing and less on their personal vehicles to help reduce traffic congestion in our city.
