Affordable Pricing

Made for college students, with student budgets in mind

No more paying $200 for a round trip flight or $60 for a slow train ride. With PoolUp, only pay for reasonable costs for your trips.​

On weekends when all the busses and trains were booked, PoolUp saved the day!! You get cheap rides and you can give rides to those in need while covering your own expenses. Everyone was so lovely. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

Great app! Simple, fast, and beautiful. It's like AirBnB for ride-sharing. So glad this is a thing now... I feel safe offering and taking rides with the app, with PoolUp’s transparency efforts.
