July POOL Pass: Ride for a penny all month long

Your trips in July are only a penny a ride when you purchase a POOL Pass, a new pilot program.

You can take uberPOOL trips any time or day of the week, anywhere within the designated zone that stretches all across greater Boston from Dorchester to Somerville to Brookline. See map below for details.

We’ve got you covered with two options, whether you’re a power user or a part-time rider, you can choose from a 20 ride POOL pass for $40 or a 40 ride POOL pass for $75.

Whichever option you purchase, your trips will always be just one cent ($.01), even in times of high demand. This means you’ll only pay about $2 per trip when factoring in the price of the pass. Passes will be available for purchase in the Uber app Monday 6/20 – Wednesday 6/29.

HOW TO PURCHASE
