1. What’s Uber Express pool
An affordable shared ride that works better, together. Now it’s only available in Bay Area. Ref: Uber
Meet and Drop at Express spots
Do you have some experience that you can’t meet your driver even you pin the place? I think it’s time-efficient if Uber decide the express spots for both drivers and riders. Here’s the example that I drop off the Uber, and I just need to walk couple minutes to get my destination( within this green circle).
Here’s the price I checked (with Ride pass package) on 1/3/18, isn’t it a big different? It’s 23 miles from Mountain View to Fremont, but I should only pay $1.99.
Improve the route
When you request a ride, people around you are trying to go to the same place. We find those riders up front for fewer detours later. Ref: Uber
Need time to walk for 2~3 mins
It means you can’t just chill at home and wait Uber. It’s not recommend to request Uber express pool in rainy day. Or it will be more difficult if you carry some heavy stuff.
If you have some important events such as Exam or meeting, please choose UberX to save some time.
