Uber Pool

Walk a little, save a lot.

Uber Pool matches you with riders heading in the same direction, so you can share the cost.

How UberPool works

1. Request

When you order your Pool trip, we’ll ask you to wait for two 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 metres, 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 the final destination.

Uber price estimator

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

What’s different about UberPool

Pick-ups 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 trip right, UberPool 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 with UberPool with a friend, but if you’re riding with more than two people or extra luggage, it’s best to request UberX or UberXL.

Frequently asked questions
