uberPOOL 101 Guide


$5 uberPOOL Rides on #POOLFridays

Singapore, gear up for $5 POOL rides tomorrow — the most affordable option to get around in a car, no matter where you’re headed. Request uberPOOL and we’ll connect you with other riders traveling along your route, so you can share your trip and spend no more than the price of a cup of coffee. 

If you’re new to uberPOOL, not to worry – this 5-minute guide will transform you into a POOL Pro and all ready for the POOL party this month.


uberPOOL enables people going in the same direction at the same time to share the journey. This means more butts in fewer cars, cheaper rides for more passengers and less congestion on the road.






Open your Uber app and set your pickup and drop-off location under the uberX option.



Tap left to select the uberPOOL option. Tomorrow, you can expect to see a $5 flat fare when you use promo POOLAUG5.



You may get matched with another rider traveling the same way. Whether you’re connected with someone else or not, you’ll always pay the guaranteed fare displayed in the app.


The best time to uberPOOL is when you have a few extra minutes to spare. Sometimes you share a ride with someone else, and sometimes you ride alone. Some days you get picked up first, and some days you get picked up second.

So, have a little time to spare? Jump into uberPOOL and save big.

Pro Tip: If you are headed to the airport this weekend, request an uberX instead. Either way, both options end with a safe and reliable arrival at your destination.



You cannot make multiple stops or change your destination once you start your POOL trip.



Do be at the pickup point ahead of time. Your driver-partner will wait up to 2 minutes for you.



You can request a ride for up to 2 passengers. Travelling with 2 or 3 friends? Request an uberX instead.


Now, you’re all set to POOL! Why not spread these tips with other friends by sharing our social links?
