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.
