    Another one of those experimental Uber servies that was released but later turned off.

    In US, I believe it was only available in Seattle.  It's unique characteristic was that it was primarily for commuters, left and arrived at specified locations, and it was a shared ride

    It basically worked like a bus.  you do use the app, and then you "request" a ride.  you show up at one of the locations at an instructed time, and you hop on.

      Addendum: I think it was pretty much replaced by UberExpress Pool.

    It's Ubers latest spin on express pool that's supposedly being tested in the Seattle market.  Everyone travels to a set location at a specific time, and are transported by a driver to a single dropoff.  It's a variation of Uber pool, and another way that Uber is trying to compete with mass transit. 

    Quite frankly I don't see this as a very viable option until Uber expands exponentially the number of riders they have in the area.  Short of that, you have nothing more than an inflexible shuttle to Amazon.

    I thought mayeb this would be like Uber brewery tour or something. They do have UberWine. I guess they would jsut call this UberBeer though huh. UberHops sounds like a fun name for a brewery tour though :)
