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.
Together, we save
UberPool matches you with riders heading in the same direction, so you can share the ride and cost.
• Affordable door-to-door rides
• Carpool with others in comfortable sedans
• Maximum 2 seats per request
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.
What’s different about UberPool
Pickups along the way
We’ll 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 might take 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, UberPool can be magical. Be at the curb ready to go before your driver arrives to make sure no one in your car is kept waiting.
Stay the course
Once your UberPool trip starts, your destination is set and locked. This helps us figure out who else to pick up and the best route to take.
2 per crew
You can request UberPool with a friend, but if you’re riding with more than 2 people or extra luggage, request UberX or UberXL.
