The uberPOOL Toronto rates are really cheap during their initial launch, so get excited Canada! Uber Canada is thrilled to bring uberPOOL back to Toronto following the successful two-week trial during the Pan Am Games in 2015. Beginning Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 2pm, you can share your ride and split the cost by being matched with someone traveling the same way—making your fare 30% cheaper than uberX. Uber Canada’s vision for uberPOOL is simple. Uber wants to reduce the number of cars on the road, while providing Torontonians with transportation that’s more affordable than ever. When 2 people share their ride, that’s one less car on the road and a cheaper fare for both riders. Getting a chance to catch an uberPOOL Toronto ride is very straightforward for those of you who are not familiar:
- Select uberX.
- Set your pickup location.
- Set your destination location.
- Tap “Set Pickup Location” to confirm your trip details.
- Choose how many seats you need.
- Tap “Request uberPOOL” to save money by sharing your trip. You’ll be matched with another rider or two traveling along a similar route at any point during your trip.
- Or you can tap “Request uberX” to get your own car, if you do not want to share your trip with anyone else.
