Good news for Uber users who don’t mind sharing a car with a fellow rider or two. Starting today, UberPOOL is offering flat rates in Manhattan below 96th Street.

This means that you can travel anywhere from the Seaport to Central Park and only pay a maximum of $10 for your ride, even if you are not matched with another rider.

With this latest promotion from Uber, you’ll only be paying a maximum of $10.

Here’s how this offer works:

  1. Select the UberPOOL option at the bottom of your app screen
  2. Enter your destination and request — remember, your trip must originate and take place in Manhattan below 96th Street
  3. You may be matched with another rider going the same way
  4. Regardless of whether you’re matched with another rider or not,  your trip will only cost up to $10

This promotion is only available on UberPOOL trips requested and taken within Manhattan. But act quick because this offer is available for a limited time only.

If you haven’t signed up for Uber, you can join here and get your first ride free (up to $20).
