UberPool ride-sharing service launched in Delhi

UberPool Delhi

After Bangalore, Uber has launched UberPool, its ride-sharing service in Delhi. This lets users share their ride and the cost with another person who is requesting a ride along a similar route. You will get vehicles that are available on uberX and uberGO, but the trips are 10 to 30% cheaper than uberGO, making it the cheapest Uber.

How to use uberPOOL?

  1. Slide over to the uberGO option on your app
  2. Set your pickup location and drop-off locations and request
  3. You’ll see 2 options – “Share your car” and “Get your own car”
  4. “Share your car” is uberPOOL with a guaranteed fare upfront, so you know exactly what you’re going to pay
  5. Request! You might get matched with another rider going the same way
  6. Regardless of whether you’re matched or not, the fare will always be less than uberGO
  7. Currently uberPOOL is available only between 7AM – 9PM, 7 days a week. You can choose to use Cash, PayTM, Airtel Money, Credit or even Debit card.

uberPOOL is available between 7AM to 9PM, 7 days a week, but it can be requested only from select places in Delhi and each request can have a maximum of 2 riders per pick up. You will be matched with another requester, for up to 4 riders in total. You can read more about the available location on the Uber Blog here.
