Ride Sharing Service UberPOOL

Uber has just launched their uberPOOL. The idea here is sharing the ride and fare. I think it's a pretty good idea. Surges nowadays is crazy high. Most of us experience this when it rains or when it's payday. I guess with this idea, it will lessen the ride cost and congestion... maybe..

Ofcourse the simple mechanics here is that it is best for passengers who are going the same route and time. Laurence Cua, the Uber Philippines general Manager shares, "This means cheaper rides for passengers and less congestion in the city's streets over time, getting more people into fewer cars".

How does it work?
  1. Chose uberPOOL option in the app. Enter the destination and request a ride.
  2. UberPOOL with match you with another passenger heading in the same direction
The trip is more affordable because it is shared. "Saving gasoline, saving money, and getting one less car off the road," Cua said.

Personally, I think that the idea sounds great, there will be bumps on the road and some unexpected incidents in pooling strangers into one car, but you can also gain a friend on the road. Let's see where it takes us. :)
