Good news, Uber riders who like riding with other strangers and work in the Denver Tech Center! The ride-hailing service is expanding its uberPOOL into your neck of the woods.

You can see the areas where riders can share a ride to reduce cost here.

State representatives and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock offered plauditory quotes for the company in its press release:

“What’s great about uberPOOL is that it helps alleviate the congestion because people are carpooling to and from work. That’s good for the workers and our environment,” state Rep. Paul Rosenthal said a statement for the company.

Good for some workers anyway. CNN reports that Uber drivers don’t like using the pool option because it hurts their ratings and earns them less money. But Uber also penalizes drivers who refuse to accept pool rides with “timeouts,” the outlet said.
