Uber may offer its “Express POOL” service as an option at San Francisco International Airport
22 February, 2018, 00:51
Express Pool works much like UberPool in that it enables riders to share their journeys with others heading in the same general direction for cheaper fares. In an effort to make those shared rides more efficient, cheaper, and direct, you'll now have to walk to and from your designated pick up and drop off points so the driver doesn't have to deviate from the route to get you where you need to go. After choosing the option within the Uber app, riders will be paired with nearby passengers. In addition to Miami, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., San Diego and Denver will start offering the new express rides. Theoretically, the more customers use UberPool and Express Pool, the less Uber has to subsidize due to increased revenue. Uber is launching a new service called Express Pool which will hopefully mitigate some of these problems. Stock says passengers can expect to wait for 1 to 2 minutes while the app pairs them with other riders traveling along a similar route.
Uber has been testing the new service in San Francisco and Boston since late 2017. "By spending that little waiting time up front, while you're finishing getting ready and trying to get out the door, we can find the right driver for you and your drive will be faster than a regular Pool ride is today".
The company announced on Wednesday a shared ride service called Express Pool.
Metro spokesperson Dave Sotero says the agency was not aware of the new Express Pool option. Rides can be up to 30% cheaper than Uberpool and could cost up to 75% less than a regular Uber ride.

From a public policy perspective, these types of ride-pooling services represent an enormous opportunity to provide more high quality, cheap transportation to more people who don't have access to cars or public transit than ever before, said Daniel Sperling, director of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California-Davis.
The result is a service that's more affordable for passengers and more efficient for drivers, said Ethan Stock, Uber's product lead on Express Pool.
Notably, Uber Express Pool is the company's first product in over three.
Stock said the system should work well with public transit, providing first-mile and last-mile service for transit riders and by providing service to low passenger volume areas where its not cost effective for public transit to serve. The company plans to bring it to more US cities in the coming weeks and months.
