uberPOOL Washington DC has launched, and initially is offering rates that are really cheap! Uber DC is thrilled to introduce a new, innovative carpool option to DC—uberPOOL. Beginning Thursday, October 22, Uber will connect you with someone traveling the same way so you can share your ride and split the cost—making your fare 25% cheaper than uberX. There’s never been a cheaper way to ride with Uber. Since the early days of Uber, Uber has been excited about the idea of providing transportation so reliable, efficient and inexpensive, people won’t need personal vehicles. uberPOOL is an important step toward that vision. When 3 people going the same way combine trips and divide costs, that’s two less cars on the road and a cheaper fare for both riders. And that means less congestion and fewer emissions in the city. uberPOOL is currently 25% cheaper than uberX. Fares are quoted in the app before you request, so you always know exactly what you’ll pay. uberPOOL fare includes a $1.35 Safe Rides Fee. uberPOOL is available for request in the DC metro area within the District Lines, Arlington, Alexandria, National Airport, and Dulles Airport. uberPOOL trips can be taken to anywhere in the Uber DC Coverage area. uberPOOL Washington DC has a max of 2 passengers per request, so feel free to bring a friend! Keep in mind, the second passenger added to your request will add $0.75 to your fare.
