How the flat rate works
The $5.99 flat rate is available for uberPOOL rides between $6 and $15. For rides over $15, the additional amount will be added onto the flat rate (i.e., a $16 ride would only cost $6.99). If your standard fare is less than $5.99, you will only be charged for the lower fare.
UberPOOL is Uber's version of carpooling. With tens of thousands of Uber riders already on campus, this new promotion aims to encourage Uber passengers to share the ride by providing a sustainable and affordable way to travel.
Please note that you must have a ucla.edu email address to qualify, and all rides must begin and end within the qualifying area. This flat rate offer only applies to uberPOOL rides.
