How to use Express POOL
Request and wait for your pickup spot
When you request, you’ll wait a few extra moments so that we can find riders along your route. After we map the best trip, we’ll show you where to meet your driver.
Walk to your pickup spot
Walking to a corner helps avoid detours and make pickups faster. Walk to your pickup spot before the driver arrives so that no one is kept waiting.
Walk to your destination
Your trip ends at an efficient dropoff spot picked by Uber, so you’ll walk a short distance to your destination.
Benefits of Express POOL
A few moments to improve your route
When you request a ride, people nearby are trying to go to the same place. We find those riders up front for fewer detours later.
Efficient pickups and dropoffs
Uber selects a pickup and dropoff spot based on where the driver is coming from and where other riders are going, so everyone enjoys a more direct trip.
Better matches, lower prices
More-efficient rides help us keep prices even lower than the cost of uberPOOL.
