Uber sticker

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