Uber vehicle decals

Under local regulations for Honolulu, Hawaii, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place it on your rear driver windshield facing outward. You can remove it when you decide to go offline and save it for the next time. Pro Tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.

Once you become an Uber partner, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days. If you ever need a new decal after you become a partner, you can request a new one be mailed to you. You can also pick one up at your local Greenlight Hub.
