Uber decal

  • Under New York State ridesharing regulations, each partner must display an Uber decal on his or her vehicle while online. Once you become an Uber partner, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days.

  • While you wait for your Uber decal to arrive, you can print and use this temporary decal.

  • Remember that, as a partner, you are required by law to display this decal whenever you are online.

  • According to the ridesharing regulations, the decal must be placed in the bottom passenger-side corner on the inside of your front windshield, facing outward. You can remove it when you decide to go offline and save it for the next time you decide to go online.
