  1. So glad they are doing this.  I tried Uber Pool once and it was SOOOO painful.  Never again.  With these tweaks, I’m open to trying Uber Express Pool so save a few bucks.

  2. Good to see. I personally find Lyft Line to be much more pain-free than Uber Pool. Uber Pool just has historically seemed to route me incredibly out of the way in cities such as LA.

    I hope this new Uber option better competes with Lyft Line.
