Uber Canada institutes $6 flat fee for UberPool during rush hour in Toronto

UberPool first launched as a beta test in Toronto during the Pan-Am Games last summer. The cost-saving carpool service expanded to the core of the city and allows up to four people (two per request) to share a vehicle going to a similar destination for about 30 percent cheaper than a regular ride.

Amidst its trial and tribulations in Toronto, Uber announced today that it has made UberPool a flat rate fee of $6 per ride during rush hour times for the following areas:

  • Yonge and Eg to Financial District
  • Parkdale to Distillery District
  • East York to Junction
  • Annex to Union Station
