Let’s be hon­est, car­pool­ing isn’t just about squeez­ing more peo­ple into the back­seat. uberpool, the ride-hail­ing ser­vice’s new fea­ture costs less than other ride op­tions avail­able on the app. With uberpool, you get asked where you’re go­ing, and then the app pairs you up with one or two other peo­ple to ride to the same place to­gether. The rates on this par­tic­u­lar ride-shar­ing fea­ture are 20% to 50% cheaper, and is a cleaner, greener and more ef­fi­cient way to travel. Some­day, it might even re­place public trans­porta­tion al­to­gether.

uber CEO Travis Kalan­ick said in a TED Talk that Pool “turns ev­ery car into a shared car.” The ride-shar­ing fea­ture helps cut down on traf­fic, CO2 emis­sions, and re­shape cities al­to­gether be­fore the com­ing self-driv­ing car rev­o­lu­tion.
