Save with uberPOOL near UCLA

January 24, 2018 / Los Angeles

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is partnering with Uber to help students, staff, and faculty save more with uberPOOL.

From February 1 to June 17, 2018, all UCLA affiliates—including students, staff, and faculty—can request uberPOOL rides near campus and pay a max of $5.99 for fares up to $15. Rides must be within the qualifying area.

How to opt in
  1. If you are new to Uber, sign up here with your ucla.edu email address.
  2. For existing users, update the email address in your account with your ucla.edu email in the Uber app.
  3. Go to the Payment tab in your Uber app and enter the code UCLAWINTER2018. Please allow up to 3 hours for the promo code to apply. You will receive a confirmation email once flat fares are active for your account.
  4. Take your uberPOOL ride within the qualifying area. (Approximately a 5-mile radius from the center of the UCLA campus).
How the flat rate works

The $5.99 flat rate is available for uberPOOL rides between $6 and $15. For rides over $15, the additional amount will be added onto the flat rate (eg, a $16 ride would only cost $6.99). If your standard fare is less than $5.99, you will only be charged the lower fare.

Must have a ucla.edu email address to qualify. Rides must begin and end within the qualifying area. Only applies to uberPOOL rides.
