We’ve all been there, that quick pick up ruined by London’s one-way systems. Starting today, we’re introducing a new, improved way to POOL to solve just that problem – cutting down on detours to save you time.

How does it work?

  1. Enter your destination and request uberPOOL.
  2. When you request a ride between 6am and 9pm, we’ll direct you to a smart pickup point to meet your driver.
  3. Walk to your smart pickup point: we’ve timed it so you and your driver should arrive there at the same time.
  4. The app will choose the best drop-off point – you may be dropped off a short walk from your final destination if that helps to avoid detours

New uberPOOL:



Better for drivers: The new uberPOOL means drivers have speedier pick ups and spend less time on detours trying to pick up their next passenger. With uberPOOL there’s also less waiting time between paying trips for drivers.

Better for cities: Our mission is to get more people into fewer cars. The more people share their Uber journey and leave their own cars at home, the more mileage and emissions we can save. uberPOOL has now been chosen more than 2 million times in London and shared journeys have saved more than 1.3 million miles being driven and 231 metric tonnes of CO2.
