Join the POOL party by booking your first ride and follow these tips-

  1. Meet your match: uberPOOL connects you in real-time with 1-2 passengers heading in the same direction, it adds only a few minutes to your trip, and you both save big. Do not cancel and re-request, as you will likely be matched with the same car. Don’t leave your co-rider hanging!
  2. Plan for slightly longer ETAs: uberPOOL’s estimated time of arrival may be a little longer than you’re used to. By giving yourself a few extra minutes, you can help guarantee everyone has a pleasant, stress-free trip.
  3. Be ready to go: After arriving at your location, your uberPOOL driver will wait for only 2 minutes for you to hop in. Being on time helps you and your co-rider avoid major delays, so everybody wins.

Did you take your first POOL ride? Awesome! You just got smarter with your choices.
