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
- If you are new to Uber, sign up here with your ucla.edu email address.
- For existing users, update the email address in your account with your ucla.edu email in the Uber app.
- 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.
- 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.
