Uber Pool is a shared ride option that allows you to join other users with similar routes on the same trip, while sharing the cost. To save even more with Pool, select the option for a short walk to and from your ride.
By choosing to walk, you'll get picked up in a spot that's on your driver's current route, while also getting dropped off near your destination. This saves time for your driver and co-riders, while you save on the cost of the ride.
HOW TO USE THIS FEATURE
1. When selecting your ride, tap "CHOOSE POOL." You'll see the option already selected for a short walk to & from your ride.
2. From here, you can see any savings for walking and select if you'll need 1 or 2 seats on the trip.
3. Once you've finalized those details, confirm your trip by tapping "Request Pool."
Note: If you don't see the option to walk when requesting your next Pool trip, this feature may not be available in your area.
HOW IT WORKS
Before your trip, we take a few moments to find riders near you or on similar routes. While your driver is on the way, we'll provide walking directions to the pickup spot.
Your car will be matched with other riders heading in a similar direction. Walk to the pickup spot before the driver arrives, that way no one is kept waiting. By sharing your ride, you share the cost which keeps Pool affordable, so expect pick-ups and drop-offs along the way.
As you near the end of your trip, our algorithm will choose a drop off spot, notify you, and provide walking directions for the last few blocks to your final destination.
