Why it's helpful
Get on your way faster
There’s no need to cancel and re-request a pickup if you need to change your location. Edit your pickup address in the app and your driver will be with you shortly.
How it works
Open your app
Tap to open the app, then tap Edit next to your pickup location.
Adjust your pickup
Type a new address or drag your pin to any location on the map within the gray circle.
Confirm your location
Tap Confirm to complete your request and your driver will pick you up at the new location.
When you schedule a ride using the Scheduled Ride function the Uber app will make a request on your behalf ahead of your scheduled pickup window to try to ensure that you have a ride available. Use of the Scheduled Ride function does not guarantee that a ride will be available and/or that your driver will arrive at the specified time. Your booking is not confirmed until Uber has sent you the details of your booking and the estimated time of arrival. In the event a car is not available Uber will let you know by the end of your scheduled pickup window.
Options vary based on your city and region.
You'll only be able to adjust your pickup location one time, and it can only be moved within the circle that's shown on your screen.
Please note: changing your pickup location is not available on uberPOOL.
