Carpooling Is Back! UberX Share Launches In Cities Across The U.S.
Remember the times of sharing an Uber ride with a complete stranger? Well, they’re back! It may seem like it was forever ago, but shared rides are back again with UberX Share.
Starting this week rides in cities across the U.S. will be able to save money on their rides with UberX Share.
“I took a shared ride for an hour-long commute from Chicago to Schaumburg late at night 1 AM to 2 AM…it saved me a ton of money and literally more and more people piled in at different points…it felt like a party bus!” says Diana from Chicago, IL.
Uber says, “Since pausing shared rides in 2020, our teams have been working tirelessly to revamp the experience.”

Staying on schedule
You don’t have to worry about being late when choosing UberX Share. Riders will only be matched with other riders going in the same direction. UberX Share rides will arrive 8 minutes or less than an UberX ride.
Good for the environment
UberX Share is not only good for your bank account but also helps with sustainability for riders, drivers, and cities. Fewer cars will be on the road which results in fewer emissions per passenger.
