To allow for more distance between riders and drivers, passengers are no longer allowed to sit in the front seat when riding with Uber. This means every ride requested with Uber will have one less passenger seat available.
Why ride with Uber Pool
Pickups along the way
The Uber app will look for riders along your route to fill empty seats in the car. Greet your co-riders with a smile—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.
Maximum 2 seats per request
You can request a ride using Uber Pool with a friend, but if you’re riding with more than 2 people or extra luggage, choose UberX or other options with more seats available.
How UberPool works
Open the Uber app and enter your destination in the "Where to?" box. Tap the UberPool ride option at the bottom of your screen. Then tap Confirm UberPool. You can request UberPool for up to 2 people.
You’ll see the time until your driver arrives, as well as the estimated window of time to arrive at your destination.
Look at the map in the Uber app as you walk to your pickup spot. Be at the curb before your driver arrives to make sure no one in your car is kept waiting.
We’ll match your car with other riders heading your way. This is how we can offer you a low price, so expect additional pickups and/or dropoffs along your trip.
3. Hop out
Simply exit the car when you reach your destination. We’ll automatically charge the price to the payment method you have on file. If your trip was 5 stars, consider tipping your driver in the app after your trip.
