Uber intends to offer an alternative to the L train shutdown via their pilot program Commuting Together How will it work? “Uber wants to target existing drivers that cross the Williamsburg Bridge to offer other commuters a ride across the bridge. Through their pilot program titled “Commuting Together,” drivers making the trip across the bridge will open their Uber app, enter the destination they’re going to, be able to look up other people also wanting to go in the same direction, and pick them up on the way.” Unfortunately, the New York City regulations that are in place prevent such a car pooling effort.
