Uber Vehicle Solutions

In the Uber platform there are several vehicle solutions. This means that at the time of request a ride, Uber riders have the possibility to choose between different options / services that Uber offers. These services allow Uber Users to economize as in the case of Uber Pool or to have more complete services as in the case of Uber Assistance or to have a larger car with more seats. For an Uber Driver it is important to know these services and know for which of them your car can qualify.

Checklist of Uber Vehicle Solutions

Uber Economy Shared Rides: Uber Pool, Uber Express Pool

What is the difference between Uber Express Poll and Uber Pool?

Uber Express Pool and Uber Pool are both cheap Uber rides. They allow you to pay less because you share the car and the route with other Uber Users going in your same direction. Do not worry Uber App automatically calculates everything by itself. The big difference between Uber Express Pool and Uber Pool is in the Pick up and Dropp off.

If you use Uber Express Pool, you will probably need to walk a couple of blocks to get to the pick-up spot and walk up to a couple blocks from your Express drop-off spot close to your destination

If you choose Uber Pool, the pick up and dropp off locations are exactly the ones you indicated when choosing your ride and you will not have to walk. Obviously these types of rides are cheap but they are not the most appropriate to choose if you are in a hurry.
