Join us on the ride toward a green future

Uber Green is a low-emission ride option that connects you with hybrid and fully electric vehicles.

Why go with Uber Green

Lower-emission rides

By choosing Uber Green, you’re helping to make your city more sustainable. Each Uber Green trip in a hybrid or electric vehicle produces at least 25% fewer carbon emissions than the average trip.*

Support for drivers who use Uber Green

Each time you choose Uber Green, you’ll pay $1 more than an Uber X trip. On each Uber Green trip, EV drivers earn an extra $0.50 paid by riders when they select Uber Green.** This $0.50 is in addition to extra earnings from the Zero Emissions incentive.

How to request Uber Green

1. Request

Open the Uber app and enter your destination in the “Where to?” box. Once you confirm that your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select Uber Green at the bottom of your screen (you might need to scroll down). Then tap Confirm Uber Green. After you’ve been matched with a driver, you’ll see their picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map, just like any other Uber option. Uber Green trips include a $1 fee. Half goes directly to your driver for their use of a hybrid or electric vehicle; the other half will help other drivers with fossil-fuel vehicles transition to electric.

Note: Uber Green is available in certain cities only. In addition, availability may be limited outside of downtown areas to start.

2. Ride

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

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

3. Hop out

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

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

Helping drivers go electric

Drivers are leading the way toward a greener future, and Uber is committed to supporting them. Our Green Future program provides access to resources valued at $800 million to help hundreds of thousands of drivers transition to battery EVs by 2025 in Canada, Europe, and the US.

Uber will be a zero-emission mobility platform by 2040
