On August 15th Uber announced a new feature for shared rides called Non-Stop Shared Rides.
When a rider orders an UberX ride, at certain times of the day. They will be presented the option to take the last seat in an Uber Pool and be the first to exit the ride. Riders who have been selected and, choose to share a ride will get Uber Cash. That can be used towards their next ride or Eats order, while getting them to their destination in roughly the same amount of time.
The Non-Stop Shared Rides feature is currently available in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington D.C.
