Uber Brings uberPool Pass to DC
Pay $30 and Receive 20 $1 Trips For the Month of August
In response to the concerns from residents within the Washington D.C. area in regards to the growing problems with the Metro, Uber has made the uberPool Pass available to residents within impact areas.
The uberPool Pass is a $30 pass, that allows riders in designated areas throughout D.C. to ride uber 20 times in the month of August and only pay $1 for each ride.
The designated areas, according to Uber, stretch from Clarendon, to Cleveland Park, to Capitol Hill. The $1 price of the trips will not be impacted by surge times due to high demand.
The passes are available for purchase through the Uber App until noon on Sunday, July 31. According to Uber, simply open the app and select the POOL Pass option at the bottom right to be charged a one time fee of $30 for the 20 ride pass.
