How Pool works
Uber Pool allows riders going in the same direction to share a ride for a lower price. While UberX allows you to make money with your car, Pool gives you the opportunity to make money with every seat. The pricing and service fee for Pool trips was recently updated to ensure that drivers always earn the same or more than UberX on every Pool trip.
When a rider requests a Pool trip, they’ll be asked to wait up to 2 minutes while we find someone going in the same direction.
Once the trip’s confirmed, riders may have to walk up to 250 metres to a nearby pick-up point, and the trip may end a short distance from their desired drop-off location.
This means multiple riders can be taken on a more direct route, with less time consuming detours.
Drivers also now have the ability to report riders who misuse Pool, for example, if a rider asks you to reject other riders or is being inconsiderate towards co-riders.

Pool Safety Training
As part of our commitment to safety, and following discussions with TfL, we’ve launched a ride-sharing training programme for all partner drivers. This training will give you valuable skills for both UberPool and other types of trips, helping you to identify a difficult rider, deal with the situation correctly and then report them.
