How to set your Trip Type Filter option

November 30, 2017 / Australia

At Uber, we’re always looking for ways to improve the Uber Driver app experience for driver-partners.

You’ve told us that flexibility is one of the main reasons you drive using the Uber app. With this in mind, we’re excited to introduce Trip Type Filter, a new feature that lets you select which types of trip requests you’d like to receive, whenever you want.

It works by giving you the option to toggle on, or off, any trip types you are eligible to receive in the Uber app. You don’t need to go online using another vehicle option.

Here’s the steps to use Trip Type Filter:

  1. Tap the Menu icon on the top right corner of the Uber app.
  2. Tap the white gear icon near the top right of your screen
  3. You can now filter the trip types you want to (or don’t want to) receive.
    • For instance, if you only want to receive Uber Eats delivery requests, and not uberX requests, simply deselect ‘uberX’

You can always access your preferences to change which trip types you’d like to receive.

Also, if you haven’t received a trip request in a while, you’ll receive a notification in the Uber app to see if you’d like to change your trip type filter.

Dynamic Pricing

You will continue to see dynamic pricing for all trip types that you are eligible to receive, even though you may have toggled off a trip type.  We want to make sure you know what dynamically priced trips may be available to you.

While you won’t be able to receive trip requests for toggled off trip types, you can always toggle the trips back on at any time.  

Unable to see a trip type option you’re eligible to receive?

If you’re having issues seeing a trip type option that you’re eligible to receive, it is recommended to try a complete force-restart of the Uber app.
