Uber gets into ride sharing with Uberpool
Uber is trialing the service in SF. If you request a ride and a driver is headed in a similar direction, you can receive a discount, cutting UberX prices by estimated 40%. As we have discussed recently, a few new services have been focusing on seat level services aiming to undercut UberX, but so far most are very early on. Uber’s existing density gives it a great shot at making this work.
