Uber Express pool + Ride pass (Each ride is under $3 in 22 miles)

I am sharing the new function by Uber – Express pool. It is launched on Nov, Yr17. The basic info of Uber and Scoop please check Saving on the Transportation fees in Bay Area.

1. What’s Uber Express pool

An affordable shared ride that works better, together. Now it’s only available in Bay Area.  Ref: Uber

1.1 Features

  • 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).

  • Cheaper price

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

1.2 Disadvantages

  • 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.

  • Time-Wasting

If you have some important events such as Exam or meeting, please choose UberX to save some time.

2. How to use Uber Express Pool

It will take 2 mins to improve the route in Uber app. You will have some buffer to prepare to go.IMG_4322
