Frequently asked questions
Is the price split equally among riders?
Yes. The cost of the ride is divided equally among riders who accept the invite to split the fare.
Is there an additional cost?
Yes. When a fare is split, each participating rider is charged a fee of 25 cents. Your receipt will show the total Split Fare fee for all riders.
What if a rider doesn’t accept a Split Fare invitation?
If a rider chooses not to accept Split Fare or doesn't have a valid payment method, you'll be charged for both your portion and theirs.
Can I still use Apple Pay?
If you use Apple Pay but want to split a fare, you may need to use another payment method. You can switch back to Apple Pay on your next trip.
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.
If a rider chooses not to accept Split Fare or doesn't have a valid payment method, you'll be charged for both your portion and theirs. Active promotions on your account only apply to your share of the price.
