UberPOOL, a carpooling service by Uber, now in Hyderabad.3 years ago Sameeksha Bansal
At least once in our cab taking life, if not more, all of us have wondered if we could share the costs will fellow commuters. Well, now Uber lets you do just that. With their latest announcement, UberPOOL, Uber allows you to share your ride with passengers that have similar pickup and destination points. The working of this feature is simple: you choose the UberPOOL option and set your pickup location and destination. Here you are offered two options: ‘Get Your Own Car’ or ‘Share Your Car’, choose the later option to see the fixed rate you’ll need pay for this ride. Uber then proceeds to match you with passengers seeking to ride in the same direction. Uber assures that you’ll end up paying what was shown when you booked your ride, even if no other passengers were matched with your ride. It’s guaranteed that you’ll pay less than what you would pay if you take a solo cab. Since the passengers are matched based on destination, Uber also guarantees that the UberPOOL option takes just a few minutes more than the UberGO option – their solo cab.
The UberPOOL services are currently available between 6:00 AM = 10:00 AM on all days of the week. UberPOOL allows you to book up to 2 seats. Refer to map below to know the areas where UberPOOL is active.
