Uber PH introduces their newest ridesharing feature — uberPOOL
Starting June 15, you can be one of the first to try uberPOOL — a ride sharing feature that Uber launched in other countries that has been proven to cut down on the number of cars on the road. Basically, it allows you to share your ride and save on costs, while getting cars off the road.
According to Uber’s newsroom, this feature will work by following this instruction:
- Request: Under uberX, select the uberPOOL option. Set your pick-up location AND destination so you can get the upfront price.
- Ride: You may be matched with another rider traveling along a similar route. Picking up additional riders may add a few minutes to your trip, but this guarantees a cheaper fare.
- Relax: Sit back, whether or not you’re matched with other rides, you’ll still pay up to 25% less!
uberPOOL will be available on the entire Metro Manila starting June 15. Would you try out uberPOOL when it launches? Do you think it’s the future of transportation? Tell us what you think on the comment section below.
