Uber is a service that enables you to book a car service with the tap of your finger on your smartphone or mobile device. Depending on which of the hundreds of cities that you are in, you can also get different levels of car service ranging from UberX (a low-cost sedan), UberBlack, UberSUV and more, and the great news is they are lowing their uberPOOL prices in Boston with their new Pool Pass pilot program.
Only Available to Purchase:
Monday 6/20 – Wednesday 6/29
- Open the app anytime from 6/20 – 6/29 and request the POOL Pass option (the same way you would request uberX or uberPOOL).
- Take your pick from either the 20 or 40 ride POOL Pass.
- You’ll be automatically charged either $40 for the 20 ride pass or $75 for the 40 ride pass using the card on file.
- We’ll send you an email confirming your purchase, and you can start using it July 1.
You can take uberPOOL trips any time or day of the week, anywhere within the designated zone that stretches all across greater Boston from Dorchester to Somerville to Brookline. See map below for details.
We’ve got you covered with two options, whether you’re a power user or a part-time rider, you can choose from a 20 ride POOL pass for $40 or a 40 ride POOL pass for $75.
Whichever option you purchase, your trips will always be just one cent ($.01), even in times of high demand. This means you’ll only pay about $2 per trip when factoring in the price of the pass. Passes will be available for purchase in the Uber app Monday 6/20 – Wednesday 6/29.
Purchasing the POOL Pass does not guarantee the availability of any trip. Rides are a flat $.01 fare on uberPOOL, unaffected by surge. To qualify, trips must meet the following requirements:
- Occur between July 1-31, 2016
- Trips must begin and end within the designated zone (see map)
- Applicable on up to 20 or 40 trips, depending on the pass purchased
