Car-Pooling Helps Uber Go the Extra Mile - The New York Times

"Here’s another way to put it: UberPool may push us to re-evaluate how we think about Uber and its impact on the world.

The car service has long been polarizing. Though Uber is beloved by many riders, the way it has muscled into cities and the public consciousness, and the manner in which it has altered labor relations and urban planning, have rattled lawmakers, activists and even its drivers.

UberPool raises the stakes. Because it reduces price and increases volume, it suggests that if Uber ultimately succeeds, the company could have a much bigger impact on urban mobility, labor, the environment, local economies and the national transportation infrastructure than we’ve all supposed — and its effects could confound the expectations of its harshest critics."
