Why ride with Uber WAV

Fast, flexible rides

When and where WAV is available, request a ride on demand that works around your life, not the other way around.

Trips that fit your budget

The price of an Uber WAV ride is comparable to UberX, our basic ride option.

Specialized drivers to assist you

Every person driving with Uber WAV has completed a certification course offered by a third party to help you enter and exit the vehicle.*

1. Request

Open the app and enter your destination in the "Where to?" box. Once you confirm your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select WAV at the bottom of your screen (a promo code is required in some cities). Then tap Confirm WAV.

If a WAV driver is available and accepts your ride request, you’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map.

2. Ride

Check that the vehicle details match what you see in the app before getting in your WAV.

Your driver has your destination and directions for the fastest way to get there, but you can always request a specific route.

3. Exit the vehicle

You'll be automatically charged through your payment method on file, so you can exit your WAV as soon as you arrive.

Remember to rate your driver to help keep Uber safe and enjoyable for everyone.
