How UberPool works

1. Request

When you order your Pool trip, we’ll ask you to wait 2 minutes while we find a nearby rider going your way, so you can share the cost of the trip.

2. Walk

The app will direct you to a nearby pick-up point where you can meet your driver after a short walk (no more than 250 meters, or around 4 minutes).

3. Ride

Pool will give drivers the most direct route to each rider and their drop-off points. This means you may be also be dropped off a short distance from final destination.

Uber price estimator

Sample rider prices are estimates only and do not reflect variations due to discounts, traffic delays, or other factors. Flat rates and minimum fees may apply. Actual prices may vary.

What’s different about UberPool

Pickups along the way

We’ll look for riders along your route to fill empty seats in the car. Be polite and respectful at all times - together, you’re saving money.

It takes a little longer

With extra riders, it may take a little longer to get there, but you’ll always see your estimated arrival time in the app. If you’re in a rush, try UberX.

Beat your driver to the pickup

When you time your ride right, Pool can be great. Be at the pick-up point before your driver arrives to make sure no one in your car is kept waiting.

Room for two

You can ride Pool with a friend, but if you’re riding with more than 2 people or extra luggage, it’s best to request UberX or UberXL.

FAQ

What to expect along the way

It’s a party! UberPool only allows 2 per request, but you can use UberX or UberXL for larger groups.

On average, riding with UberPool only adds a few minutes to your overall trip time. We’ll always show your estimated arrival time in the app as you ride.

Pickup and dropoff order is determined by where your destination falls along the route, not the order of who was picked up first.

Riders can hop in and out during your trip. If all empty seats are filled, we’ll stop looking for extra riders. Additionally, we’ll stop looking for extra riders to make sure you meet your arrival time.

Though some pickups and dropoffs may be slightly out of the way, we’ll always do our best to make sure you arrive by the time shown in the app.
