Note that the value of the pool trip has to start and end in the designated zone. So, you'll get a some arse of a rider saying that he didn't get the cheap rate because of the conditions.

I'll be in North Carolina when this crap starts... not that I would even accept uberPOOL.

I was driving through that zone an hour ago. I rarely drive there, work put me there so I turned on app just to see the action. Pool after Pool after Pool requests! I was put in Virtual Corner immediately.

I am assuming it will be nothing but pool requests starting in August and uberx will become a thing of the past or for emergencies only when time is of the essence. From the pax perspective, why wouldn't you take the pool for a buck... ? I am sure pax will find a way to cheat the system and create additional accounts because again, why wouldn't they...

I just came home thru all the downtown traffic and taking one of these pools, even at surge, would be $7-8 minimum and take at least 1/2 hour , more likely more.

Get ready for some super uber pool incentives coming up. It'll be the only way they can handle all the request. Wouldn't be surprised if they gave everyone hourly guarantees where they have to accept all rides for the month of August. And with all the safe ride fees from pax they wouldn't lose that much money doing it, while getting pax hooked on pool. Stay tuned!!
