Uber and Lyft Want to Share the Wealth, Cheaply

Ride-hailing apps are bringing back the shared ride, with improvements. Can sharing the wealth put them back in the driver’s seat?

After a pandemic-related hiatus, Uber Technologies began piloting a new shared-rides program late last year. The company said Tuesday it launched the revamped program in several cities across the U.S., such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. Dubbed Uber X Share, the program will expand to more cities later this summer.
