POOL for a subway fare

Over the past 3 weekends, thousands of people have taken advantage of $5 uberPOOL flat rates between Williamsburg and Manhattan. As the final 2 weeks of the L train shutdown approach, we’re lowering flat rates to ensure you can get where you need, when you need.

With $2.75 uberPOOL rides, there’s no reason to feel confined to your borough. Spring is a peak season for local restaurants, retailers, and galleries alike. We encourage you to ride to your favorite businesses all along the L Line and support the local economy.

“I’ve heard many concerns from my constituents, especially people who work on the weekends and small business owners, about the economic impact of the weekend L shutdowns. I want to thank Uber for providing an affordable alternative for those who depend on the train.” 

Councilman Antonio Reynoso, District 34

Remember, you can take an uberPOOL to the Williamsburg outpost of The Meatball Shop for a free ice cream sandwich with purchase.

“It’s amazing and incredibly generous that uberPOOL is offering rides at the same cost as the subway to New Yorkers. The L train being shut down has potential serious impact on local businesses, residents, and employees commuting back and forth to the area. The Meatball Shop is thrilled to partner with Uber because we believe that any New Yorker dealing with this transportation issue deserve a free Ice Cream Sandwich!”

Daniel Holzman, Executive Chef / Co-Owner of The Meatball Shop
