Tired of the crowds on the trains? Coming soon to Uber Bangalore – uberPOOL Bangalore! The Bangalore Traffic Police have created an initiative to increase the utilisation of cars on the road and, today, Uber is announcing our step toward that vision with uberPOOL. Launching soon in Bangalore, with uberPOOL Bangalore, you will be able to share a ride, and split the cost, with another person who happens to be requesting a ride along a similar route in your city. When Uber finds a match, Uber will notify you of your co-rider’s first name. The beauty, though, is that you will still receive Uber’s on-demand convenience and reliability, all at the tap of a button.
uberPOOL will be launching as a beta soon in uberPOOL Bangalore to gain insights into adoption and usage. Urban mobility will have a transformational impact, like it already has in cities like San Francisco, New York, and Paris. UberPOOL allows you to share your ride and split the cost of your trip with another Uber rider headed in the same direction. The average time added to an uberPOOL trip is less than five minutes.
