Uber just announced that they are lowering rates to/from New York’s JFK airport for those passengers who choose to use UberPool, which is the new car sharing service the company launched. The great thing about the prices to JFK are you get this price whether you’re matched with another passenger or not.

Uber Lowers Rates to JFK Airport
Here’s how UberPool works:
- Request: Select uberX and toggle on uberPOOL. Set your pick up location and destination. (Your pickup or dropoff location must be JFK International Airport.)
- Ride: You may be matched with a fellow traveler riding along a similar route.
- Relax: Sit back and save. You’ll pay $36 regardless of whether or not you’re matched with another rider heading to or from the airport.
This is a great way to save some money if you want to take a car to/from JFK, as the rate is guaranteed to only be $36. Regular UberX prices to JFK from the city are $60, so by choosing UberPool, you’re almost saving 50% off.
As a reminder, you can signup for a new Uber account and get a free Uber $30 credit to use towards your first ride.
