Uber is currently having a promotion where Manhattan commuters only have to pay a fare of $5 to get where they need to be during commuting hours. You’re not the only one going your way. uberPOOL matches you with riders heading in the same direction so you can share your ride and the cost. How is the new commuting experience more efficient? When you request uberPOOL during commuting hours in Manhattan, you'll be asked to meet your driver at a nearby corner for pickup. You'll then be dropped off at a corner near your final destination. Corner pickups and drop-offs make driving routes more direct, so you'll save time and get to your destination faster. Do you deals like these? Do you like saving money? If so, see how you can save more money online!
