Another way to save money on your daily commute with uberPOOL.

Uber has become a leader in the transportation industry thanks to their safe, fast, and reliable rides around town. Wouldn't it be great if you could experience that same convenience and comfort every day during your daily commute, rather than sitting on a crowded subway or in traffic in your car? 

Thanks to our partnership with Uber and their low-cost ride-share service, uberPOOL, participants in select cities can do just that. And the best part? They can save money, because they can use the pre-tax dollars in their Ameriflex commuter reimbursement account to cover the cost of the ride.*

*All claims for uberPOOL expenses are subject to federal rules regarding qualified transportation benefits (Consult Treas. Reg. 1.132-9 for more information.)

What is uberPOOL?

UberPOOL lets you share your ride (and split the cost!) with other Uber riders. You'll know your fare before you even leave, and best of all, now you can pay for your ride your pre-tax CRA dollars. It's a quick and comfortable alternative to mass transit and public transportation!

Rely on public transportation for your daily commute?

Have more power and control over your schedule. No more waiting for your ride, or worrying about missing it -- you can request an uberPOOL ride at any time! 



Drive your own vehicle to and from work?

Let someone else take the wheel so you can get some work done. You'll experience a more productive commute, while also helping your city "go green" by having one less car on the road each day.

The uberPOOL program is currently available to Ameriflex participants in New York City, Washington D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Austin, Denver, Miami, Las Vegas, New Jersey (state), San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, Nashville and Portland.

How does it work?

Once you download the Uber app (available in the App Store and through Google Play), add your MyAmeriflex Card as a payment option.

When you are ready to commute, select 'uberPOOL' in the vehicle selection slider. If it is not set up as your default, be sure to choose your MyAmeriflex Card as the payment option.

Request your uberPOOL ride and you'll be on your way to a more convenient, affordable commute!
