Title: Uber Pool Flat Fares in NYC for $2.99, or Uber X for $5.99
Post by: Yehuda57 on February 02, 2017, 10:06:49 PM
After a $10 activation fee, get 20 rides at those flat rates within NYC (airports excluded), or pay $20 for 40 rides within 30 days.

Effectively, it is $3.49 per Uber Pool ride, or $6.49 per Uber X ride.

Map of included areas is here (https://image.et.uber.com/lib/fe93127371650c7977/m/10/Screen+Shot+2017-02-02+at+5.10.44+PM.png)

Sign up is here (https://www.uber.com/info/plus/newyork/)

"Flat fares apply to rides up to a $30 value for uberPOOL or a $30 value on uberX (based on time and distance). If your total ride cost exceeds the maximum value, you’ll be charged the flat fare, plus an overage for the dollar amount over the maximum ride value covered. And don’t worry, if the total ride cost is ever less than the flat fare, we’ll charge you the lesser amount."

If you take one UberX $30 ride, it's already paid for itself, crazy!

Thanks OP.

I actually got the email from Uber and disregarded it without opening since I figured it was another "only within Manhattan" package.

Will flat fares cover rides of any price?

$2.99 uberPOOL and $5.99 uberX flat fare pricing covers almost every trip within the NYC area, up to a $30 value for uberPOOL or $30 value for uberX. If the total cost of your ride exceeds the maximum value stated, you'll be charged the flat fare price, plus any remaining amount above the maximum value.
Trips eligible within designated zone.
This zone excludes airports.

Right, so it's $24 off on any uberX ride that costs more than $30.

I wonder what would happen if you have a promo code in your account from before?

Would it use up a ride?

Also wish they put an expiration date to the promo as I would like to get in, but not waste extra days now when I'm not going to start to use it.

Great hack. Just checked from my house to long term parking, and it showed $2.99/$5.99.
Dan said you can ask them to initiate/end the trip out of the air port, but this is more reliable.

You ask for 2 seats, which will cost you an extra dollar

I've been thinking that a good option, one the might appeal more towards the drivers, might be to offer to change the destination (to some random airport hotel or something) in the app once your at your terminal. The app recalculates the fare but you'll still get the flat rate (up to 30) and this way the driver will feel much better about doing it.

(In my experience they're always more willing to make stops, or agree to interesting requests, when it's all done by updating destination in the app. Maybe because they get paid more? I don't know because I had a ride come out cheaper after adding a stop and changing destination, as the driver had requested.)

You can ask the driver to continue to an airport hotel, car rental return, etc. Doesn't need to be a random address in Queens.

Or 83-34 23rd Ave, East Elmhurst, NY 11370.

But I still don't get why this is necessary. In the Uber ap you can just write the rental car company name (or the hotel name would work too) and it will fill in the address for you.

Taking a 830am flight out of lga tomorrow. What's the likelihood I can get a shuttle from this stop you mentioned? I feel like I might need to pay for another uber from there if it takes to long to come.
When I took a flight yesterday, no waiting and first stop was terminal B which is JetBlue amongst others. Supposedly it runs every 8 minutes.

Coming back is quite a ride from terminal to 94th Street.

I have walked across the Parkway on more than one occasion in the past. It really isn't far.

Negative. It's quite useful. Though within NYC (Manhattan) and for pooling, I find Via works much better at getting you a car faster and that doesn't take you out of your way. Uberpool is JV in NYC.

I live in Washington Heights, and almost every time I've pooled, I rode alone.

not abuse in a bad way. Just I got my money's worth. I went from Flatbush to the city several times for 2.99. And split longer rides in 2. Didn't do any airport stuff.

Message from Uber support:

In order to sign up for the flat fares packages, you'll need to purchase the fares in your app. You'll then have an option in your menu in the app. - it says "Get Flat Fares". Then you'll be taken to a screen that guides you through the purchase. When you've completed your purchase, you will be able to request rides as normal and only be charged the pre-determined flat fare. These fares do not surge, and the number of trips you can get at these pre-determined flat fares depends on which package you purchased.

Not sure how to get the tab back - talking with uber support, will keep you all updated

Apparently it's available to purchase, but as above, seems only available to targeted users.
I'm assuming those that used it all up or abused it weren't targeted. I used all my 20 rides and wasn't targeted, though not in an abusive way

there is a lot of miscommunication internally with uber support - some reps said that there are no march flat fares, some said im eligble and sent links (but they didnt work) and others said i have an active package (from last month) and have 3 remaining rides and cant purchase a new one till i use up remaining rides... thing is that my old package expired march 5... going back and forth with support i dont think it has anything to do with people who "abused" or "used it all up"

Can someone who was "targeted" (and purchased the pass) confirm that they had flat fares last month?

Also, my last 4 rides the flat fare got applied wrongly and they charged more. Had to message each time and they fixed right away.

I've had that a lot too, but sometimes they're not so quick about fixing it. I have a 40% off on my account and sometimes they'll say that the "estimate" (which its not, its a predetermined fare) was significantly different from the "actual" fare so they charged me the calculated fare. They're trying to pull a bait and switch, and its not ok.

targeted offers again. last time i received email for %40 off package. got a $3.99/$8.99 email offer this morning. i believe the max amount that they covered has decreased. i think used to cover 30/35. now $20/25. getting less worth it as they go along. still not too bad though

 
Ride easy with flat fares
Enjoy guaranteed low fares in New York City for the next 4 weeks when you purchase a flat fare package. Choose between 20 rides or unlimited rides and pay a one-time activation fee to lock in $3.99 uberPOOL and $8.99 uberX rides for 4 weeks.
Pick a package
Choose the number of flat fare rides you want:
•   20 rides – $10 activation fee
•   Unlimited rides – $20 activation fee
Start riding
After you purchase, you’ll be able to ride with $3.99 uberPOOL and $8.99 uberX flat fares for the next 4 weeks.

uberPOOL flat fares cover the cost of your ride up to $20; uberX flat fares cover the cost of your ride up to $25. If your ride exceeds the flat fare cap, you'll be charged the flat fare plus an overage for the amount above the cap. And don’t worry, if the total ride cost is ever less than the flat fare, we’ll charge you the lesser amount.

You'll see these flat fares reflected in the app when you request a ride anywhere within the 5 boroughs of New York City (excludes airports).

Ready used it a bunch of times in Brooklyn and got a bunch of free rides for $0.

I actually like this better than the flat fares for local trips.

I agree this works great for me i have paid as low as .98 per Trip. Any ideas how someone that does not get offers on his app can get the offers?

Not sure. Possibly log in via the uber website?

But taking pool rides for free or for around a $1 is great. Don't have to move from parking spots and can get from place to place for pretty much nothing.

Repost In NYC

New this month: auto-renewing pass
Skip the monthly purchase rush and unlock low fares for up to twelve weeks. Your pass will auto-renew every 28 days. If you do not wish to renew, simply visit the Ride Pass section of the app and toggle auto-renewal off.

 
 
Ride easy with a pass
Enjoy guaranteed low fares in New York City when you purchase an auto-renewing pass. Every four weeks, your $15 activation fee will unlock unlimited $3.99 POOL and $9.99 uberX rides for the next 28 days.

 
 
Start riding
After your pass is activated, you'll see the pass fares in the app when you request a ride anywhere within the New York City Flat Fare zone.

 
 
Qualifying flat fare rides are non-transferable, and package terms and conditions vary by city. Flat fares are only eligible within the New York City Flat Fares zone. This zone excludes airports.

Flat fares apply to rides up to a $20 value on uberPOOL and a $25 value on uberX (based on time and distance). If your total ride cost exceeds the maximum value, you’ll be charged the flat fare, plus an overage for the dollar amount over the maximum ride value covered. And don’t worry, if the total ride cost is ever less than the flat fare, we’ll charge you the lesser amount.

Each trip may be subject to applicable New York sales tax and black car fund fee. The fare for uberPOOL and uberX trips plus any applicable overage charges may be subject to applicable New York sales tax and Black Car Fund fee.

The activation fee includes the sales price, 8.875% New York sales tax, and 2.5% New York Black Car Fund Fee. The sales price for the $15 pass is $13.47.

It is targeted. In your app, click the setting bar, then if you are targeted, the second option will be "ride pass." Click (tap?) that and watch the circle spin endlessly with nothing showing up on your screen.

Interesting. What time did you get the pass at?

It’s $12 off any ride? So if a ride cost less than $12 regularly, it’s free?

no its for a specific route work to home (usually about 60 for 48 regardless of busy times etc) all other rides is 15% off

Just got the same thing .. flat pass now only works for a particular route. And then 15% off all other rides. Definitely less valuable than before. The only good thing is that the flat fare applies even if Uber is in surge pricing (as opposed to the old version where the discount was essentially maxed at $15 regardless if it was in surge pricing or not)
