Ride uberPOOL, Win Big

2015—a new year, a fresh start. With the holiday hustle and bustle behind us, now is a perfect time to break out of old routines, explore our city, and try new things. Of course, sometimes saying is easier than doing, and so this week, we’re here to help!

Starting today, we’re bringing you POOL For Prizes—a week of prizes awarded to one lucky uberPOOL rider each day. Every prize has been specially curated to encourage socializing, adventure, and creativity to help jumpstart a great 2015.

Entering to win is easy. All you need to do is ride uberPOOL, our new carpool option, between January 5 and January 11. Every day, we’ll choose a rider at random who will receive a select prize from a list of our favorite NYC activities.
