How to use the Uber app

All you need is an email address and phone number. You can request a ride from your browser or from the Uber app. To download the app, go to the App Store or Google Play.

Open the app and enter where you’re going in the Where to? box. Tap to confirm your pickup location and tap Confirm again to be matched to a driver nearby.

You can track their arrival on the map. When they’re a few minutes away, wait for them at your pickup location.

Every time you take a trip with Uber, please make sure you’re getting into the right car with the right driver by matching the license plate, car make and model, and driver photo with what’s provided in your app.

Uber trips can only be requested through the app, so never get in a car where the vehicle or driver identity doesn't match what’s displayed in your app.

When you arrive, payment is easy. Depending on your region, you have options. Use cash or a payment method like a credit card or Uber Cash balance.

Let us know how your trip went. You can also give your driver a compliment or add a tip in the app.
