Amit Jain, President Uber India said:

“Uber is committed to India and to meeting the transportation needs of the country, with the help of smartphones and technology. We are incredibly excited to bring carpooling to three more Indian cities at the push of a button. Introducing uberPOOL to Mumbai, Kolkata and Hyderabad means more affordable rides for passengers and less congestion on the roads over time. Getting more people in fewer cars – at no extra costs to the government – and at reduced costs to riders, is a simple yet powerful example of how technology can actually transform our cities.”

WHEN: The POOL option is available only between 6AM – 10PM, 7 days a week.


WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANCEL?

Cancellations impact both your co-rider and your driver, so please try to avoid them. If you must cancel, you will be charged ₹60, as with uberGO cancellations. For the best experience on a carpool ride for both you and your co-rider, your driver will wait only 2 minutes. Request only when you’re ready to leave to avoid paying a no-show fee of ₹60.
