Wondering why your uberPOOL ride was so expensive today? Uber Canada recently stopped offering $6 uberPOOL flat rates.
Earlier this year, Uber introduced a flat rate system that had Torontonians super excited. During morning and evening rush hours, uberPOOL rides were just $6 flat. And while you’d get stuck with the occasional complainer aka that one Uber rider who’s already late and last to drop off, the offer was just too good to turn down.
And like all good things, it eventually had to come to an end.
Uber pulled a classic bait & switch move. They got Torontonians hooked on $6 uberPOOL rides, only to take it away from them a few months later! The end of $6 uberPOOL flat rates came on November 11th and we’re still crying.
But with that being said, we’re not sad that it’s over, we’re smiling ’cause it happened. And at least uberPOOL is still 40% cheaper than uberX.
