Uber | Climate Week Paris
English | French
With a shared vision for new solutions and innovation for urban mobility, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with Climate Week Paris. From 20th – 24th May 2015, all uberPOP rides switch to uberPOOL!
What is uberPOOL?
uberPOOL is Uber’s shared transportation option, based on uberPOP. The concept is easy: Uber riders will get matched with others who are located nearby and going in the same direction. The fare for the shared portion of the trip is automatically shared among the passengers – resulting in savings of up to 50% on uberPOP.
How does uberPOOL work?
- Select the option ‘uberPOOL’ at the bottom left of your screen
- Enter your destination address and request your ride.*
- Our app will match you with one or more people to share your ride with
- No matched riders? You’ll still get 10% off your fare!
*Groups of 1-2 passengers per request.
Shared mobility for cities of the future
In Île-de-France, more than 15.5 million trips are made each day in personal vehicles. With traffic congestion reaching record levels, the average Parisian spends 78 minutes per day sitting in traffic. And they are largely stuck in traffic by themselves: each vehicle in Île-de-France holds less than 1.28 occupants on average. By making it easier for people to share resources, we believe that uberPOOL’s affordability makes it a reliable alternative to personal car ownership. We are proud to contribute to an innovative use of resources that will impact urban development, reduce emissions, and help cities become more efficient.
See you soon in an uberPOOL!
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
