Uber Express POOL launching in several cities, including D.C., Denver

Posted on February 26, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — After a lengthy trial period that kicked off in San Francisco last November, Uber announced that Uber Express POOL will also be coming to Washington, D.C., Miami, Philadelphia, San Diego, and Denver, as well as more U.S. cities over the next weeks and months, TechCrunch reports.

The Express POOL launch brings a change to the current Uber POOL model that’s designed to make for more direct routing, with easier pickups for drivers and fewer deviations from the route for riders. Now, when riders hail an Uber Express POOL, they’ll be asked to wait a few minutes prior to the trip’s start, and/or walk to a nearby pick up spot, or from a nearby drop off point, to help optimize the route in as straight a line as possible along a path that can work for a number of different riders.

The Express POOL option will live right alongside the standard, existing POOL option that’s now in the app, at least for the foreseeable future, and riders can have the choice. For the full story, click here.
