You now have an even cheaper way to get home from bottomless mimosa brunches on Sundays — but you’ll have to earn it.
Yesterday the ride-share giant launched a new service, Express Pool, that will make carpool trips with Uber creepier and faster for Denver riders. The vision began in 2014 when Uber launched POOL, a vision of getting more people in fewer cars.
“It meant rides can be cheaper than uberX for passengers and over time, cities less congested and polluted,” explained Uber communications manager Stephanie Sedlak. “What we’ve seen is that people are overwhelmingly interested in sharing a ride.”
“It will be the most affordable rides product yet,” said Sedlak. “The goal of this product is three-fold. We want to first build the most affordable product for consumers. Secondly, we want to create a consistent experience. And thirdly, we want to streamline trips.”
