What is an UberPOOL?
If you aren’t familiar with Uber at this point, they are the ride-sharing (don’t say taxi) service that is sweeping the globe. Everything is cashless and you can only request a ride via the Uber app on your smart phone. UberPOOL is a shared ride and UberX is just you and your buddies. If you haven’t used the service yet, we can both receive $15 in Ubercash if you start by using my referral link. /endplug
That out-of-the-way, starting in September, San Francisco Uberers will be able to buy a “bulk pack” of UberPOOL rides. Depending on the number of rides you purchase, you can get the per-ride cost down to $2 per ride! Click here to visit Uber and purchase your discounted rides.
These pre-purchased rides are not effected by surge pricing and it is a flat rate within the qualifying zone. If you are going to a Giant’s game you won’t have to worry about surge pricing!
Another huge piece to this promo, UberX rides are a flat $7, which is a great deal because a Taxi is likely going to cost you $3.50 to go just 1/5th of a mile.
Here is the area where this promotion is valid:
Further, this is the Google Map showing the qualifying zone in a bit more detail. This promotion is good from September 1st through September 31st but you can purchase your rides starting today.
You’re all set. Flat fare pricing is valid September 1 through September 30.
