Whether it’s getting a friend home at the end of the night or making sure a loved one gets where they need safely, requesting rides for the people you care about has never been easier in the Uber app.

Now, when you set the pickup away from your current location, we’ll automatically ask whether the ride is for a family member or friend. You can then select the rider from your address book, set their destination, and request the ride on their behalf.

Once the driver is on the way, the rider will receive a text message with the driver’s details and a link to track the driver’s route. They’ll even be able to contact the driver directly. The driver will see the rider’s name, and be able to contact the rider, too.
