- Enter your destination.
- Save money by sharing your car with another rider and tapping “Request POOL,”
Save time by getting your own car and selecting “Request uberX.”

Share your ride and share your cost with uberPOOL
The key to uberPOOL is being flexible with your arrival time. 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. Late to an appointment? You should probably take uberX. Regardless, both options end with a safe and reliable arrival at your destination.
