What is Uber?
Uber is a web-based minicab service which you access via your mobile phone. It connects you, the passenger, with a vetted, private driver who can pick you up and take you where you want to go. Using the app, you can see who your driver will be and track where he is while you wait.

Uber just announced flat rates with UberPoll trips between Manhattan and JFK International Airport. UberPoll is the new car sharing service of the company: you share a ride—and split the cost—with another person who just happens to be requesting a ride along a similar route. For a guaranteed 36 USD you can get you home, hotel or to the airport safely and quickly, regardless of whether you’re matched with a fellow traveler or not.
How it works?
- Request: Select uberX and toggle on uberPOOL. Set your pick up location and destination. (Your pickup or dropoff location must be JFK International Airport.)
- Ride: You may be matched with a fellow traveler riding along a similar route.
- Relax: Sit back and save. You’ll pay 36 USD regardless of whether or not you’re matched with another rider heading to or from the airport.
