Uber’s ride splitting feature UberPool hits Europe

Uber’s feature to split the cost of rides, UberPool, will arrive in Paris tomorrow, bringing it to Europe for the first time. The service launched in San Francisco three months ago and Uber has said it will bring the option to London by the end of the year.

UberPool promises to reduce the price of your trip by as much as 50% in exchange for allowing the driver to swing by and pick up other passengers on the way. Uber claims it will slice the cost of journeys from the center of Paris to Charles de Gaulle Airport down to as little as $22 (€18).
