If you are a rider of Boston Uber POOL services, then there is an important change that you should be aware of starting today, 11/4/2015. Boston Uber POOL recently introduced an update to uberPOOL designed to save you money and improve efficiency. When you request Boston Uber POOL, you might now be matched with two pickups going in your direction, rather than one (as was the case previously). To ensure that every Boston Uber POOL trip is smooth sailing, Uber’s app will now be asking you, the rider, to select if you’re traveling with a friend so you can save more if you’re POOLing solo. Uber Boston will limit how much time the additional pickup can add to a trip. On average this only adds 3-5 minutes to your trip. By matching with more than one rider headed in your direction, POOL prices can remain as low as possible, saving you money.
