uberPOOL: Your Most Affordable Way to Ride

We’re thrilled to introduce a new, innovative carpool option to DC—uberPOOL.

When you request uberPOOL, we’ll connect you with someone traveling the same way so you can share your ride and share the cost—making your fare up to 70% cheaper than uberX*. There’s never been a cheaper way to ride with Uber.


uberPOOL–Up to 70% Cheaper than uberX


Since the early days of Uber, we’ve been excited about the idea of providing transportation so reliable, efficient and inexpensive, people won’t need personal vehicles. uberPOOL is an important step toward that vision. When 3 people going the same way combine trips and divide costs, that’s two less cars on the road and a cheaper fare for all riders. And that means less congestion and fewer emissions in the city.

HOW TO POOL

  • Request: Open your app, set your pickup and drop-off locations, compare uperPOOL and uberX prices side by side, and select the uberPOOL.
  • Ride: You may be matched with another rider, or two, traveling along a similar route.
  • Relax: Sit back and save.
