Enjoy S$5 rides to anywhere with UberPool this Friday

Who cares if the MRT breaks down again?

If you’ve not yet tried out Uber’s new carpooling service UberPool, now’s the time to do it.

The transport app giant launched the carpooling service in Singapore earlier this month as a way to bring down transportation costs for consumers. Basically, instead of riding by yourself, you’ll share the vehicle with a maximum of one other rider who’s going in the same direction. The app also promises to add only a few minutes to your ride and you’ll share the cost with the other passenger. Win-win situation for everyone.

Since the service has been such a hit, UberPool is offering a crazy S$5 promotion for one day only. From 7am to 10pm on 22 July, forget public transport because you’ll get to pool at a guaranteed rate of S$5 no matter where you travel on the island. Yes, that means even if you go from Jurong to Pasir Ris, you’ll only pay S$5 with UberPool. That’s cheaper than a value meal at Macs, what?

Simply enter the promo code POOLFRIDAY under the UberPool option in your Uber app, set a pickup destination, choose your seats and request for a car. At the end of your trip, you’ll be charged a maximum of $5. This promotion is limited to two UberPool rides per rider.
