Since April, uberPOOL has enabled San Diegans like you going the same direction at the same time to share the journey. It’s carpooling at the push of a button, cheaper rides for passengers, and less congestion over time. And by picking up where public transportation drops off, Uber gives the benefits of car ownership without the hassle or expense.
Paul Jablonski, Chief Executive Officer of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System has said:
“This is a great partnership with Uber that enhances connections to our Trolley and bus system. It comes just in time for the Major League Baseball All Star Game and for Comic-Con. People can leave their car at home, and use Uber and MTS to avoid the driving and parking hassles of coming to enjoy all the action downtown.”
Today over 30% of all Uber trips in San Diego take place on uberPOOL, and over 10,000 gallons of gas and over 90,000 kg of CO2 have been saved due to uberPOOL.
