We have recently partnered with Uber to offer a solution that will allow employees to use their Transit Benefits to pay for uberPOOL rides to commute to and from work. 

uberPOOL makes it easy to form a vanpool with your coworkers. It's like carpooling, only more fun! Don't forget though, in order for your commute to qualify as a vanpool, the vehicle must have 6 or more seats. 

Here's a little quote from our Chief Operating Officer, Meltem Korkmazel: “We are excited to be able to continue to add convenient services like uberPOOL to our product offering, as relationships such as this further enriches our robust program, offering even more savings and convenience to our customers."

Currently, uberPOOL is available in parts of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New Jersey, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC.

Need a little convincing on why sharing the ride is the way to go? Check out our Reasons to Carpool infographic.
