In the hopes of making Uber even more successful, the mobile taxi-calling app is introducing a new service that will make it more efficient to share a taxi ride with a complete stranger. Ridesharing services are not uncommon, but with UberPool, riders will be matched with someone in their area who happens to be taking a similar route.
Although sharing an enclosed space with a total stranger can sometimes feel a little awkward, UberPool provides some basic information like the person's first name, so you at least have the chance to break the ice and get acquainted with one another. As of now, UberPool is only in testing this as a "bold social experiment" however, whether or not you are matched up with someone nearby, testing the service will cut your taxi fare in half.
