MANILA– Famous ride sharing app, Uber Manila is now on foot to bring a new ride sharing option in Metro Manila. The new option matches the rider with other Uber riders in the same area, going the same direction, at the same time. The option will be available starting June 15, 2016.
The company promise the same quality of safe and reliable rides at even more affordable prices. The rider will enjoy fares 25% less than uberX each time they will request for an uberPOOL ride. The option still comes with an upfront pricing that is organic to its other ride options.
HOW IT WORKS:
- Request: Under uberX, select the uberPOOL option. Set your pick-up location AND destination so you can get the upfront price.
- Ride: You may be matched with another rider traveling along a similar route. Picking up additional riders may add a few minutes to your trip, but this guarantees a cheaper fare.
- Relax: Sit back, whether or not you’re matched with other rides, you’ll still pay up to 25% less!
