uberPOOL is an option that lets you share your ride—and share the cost—with someone else nearby. We’ll match you with other riders taking a similar routes and you’ll each pay only for your portion of the trip. That means you still get the convenience and reliability you’re used to with Uber, but at the lowest price possible.
HOW IS UBERPOOL DIFFERENT?
uberPOOL works like our other Uber options, with a few differences that help make it a cheaper option:
- You need to enter your destination when you request your trip, that way we can try to match you with someone going along a similar route
- Each rider can have only one destination and you can’t change your pickup location or destination after you request
- Since we want to be courteous to both riders, your driver will only wait 2 minutes at each pickup location
Once you’ve been matched with a co-rider, you’ll receive a notification with that rider’s name and who’s being picked up first. To ensure there’s room for everyone, right now we can only have two riders per pickup, and no pets (except service animals, of course).

CAN I BRING OTHER PEOPLE?
HOW IS MY CO-RIDER CHOSEN?
Co-riders are matched according to similar pickup locations and destinations. As always, we’re always aiming to take you on the most efficient route based on your request. Once you start your uberPOOL trip, you can’t ask the driver to cancel on the other rider.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANCEL?
When you request uberPOOL, you’re making a commitment to both your co-rider and the driver. Cancellations damage both of their experiences, so please don’t leave them hanging! Request once you’re ready to go or you’ll be charged a $2 fee if you cancel.

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
