Introducing the POOL Pass

Unlock $1 uberPOOL trips for the month of August when you purchase a 20 trip monthly POOL Pass. For $30, your POOL Pass guarantees that you’ll ride uberPOOL for only a dollar!

Take uberPOOL trips any time or day of the week, anywhere within the designated zone that stretches all across the Washington, DC metro area from Clarendon, to Cleveland Park, to Capitol Hill. All eligible trips will be just $1 a ride, even in times of high demand.

Passes will be available for purchase in the app Wednesday, July 27 through 12:00pm EDT on Sunday, July 31.
