Doubling Down on Shared RidesWritten by
Shared Rides are here to stay. At Uber, we are committed to providing you with more affordable, efficient, and sustainable transportation options that serve riders, drivers and cities.
That’s why we’re doubling down on UberX Share, our completely redesigned shared rides offering. After a successful launch last summer, we’re excited to announce that we’re expanding to Baltimore, Miami, Nashville, Philadelphia, and Washington DC in the coming weeks, with plans to launch even more cities soon.
We’re committed to becoming a zero-emissions mobility platform by 2030 in the US, Canada and Europe, and globally by 2040. And getting more butts in seats of fewer cars will help achieve our goal of zero-emissions. Uber will continue building products and features, like UberX Share, to encourage fewer cars on the road and less impact to the planet.
With UberX Share, riders can:
- Share a ride, get savings: UberX Share is always more affordable than UberX. In the US, riders will receive an upfront discount if they choose UberX Share. If they are matched with a co-rider along the way, they can save up to 20% off the total fare.
- Stay on schedule: To prevent pickups and drop-offs from causing unexpected delays, we’ll only match riders heading in the same direction. We’ve designed UberX Share so that, on average, riders arrive no more than 8 minutes later than an UberX ride.
- Make a sustainable choice: By helping to match more people in fewer cars faster, we can help cut gas use, vehicle-miles and emissions per passenger, and make transportation more affordable.
We look forward to expanding UberX Share to even more cities in the coming months.
