What is Uber?
For those who don’t know about Uber, we help people get a ride at the tap of a button – there’s no flagging your hands to stop a taxi or entering an unfamiliar car. It’s the most convenient way to get a safe, reliable and affordable ride – the app detects your location, tells you about your driver in advance, and you can choose to pay with card or cash, which makes it easy and safer for both riders and drivers.
To request a ride:
1. Download the Uber App
2. Register with your personal details
3. Choose your pick-up location, request a ride and track your car in real-time

With Uber, riders can also share the costs of their ride with a tap of a button — which means whether you are heading to the airport, doing some shopping at Marina Mall, planning movie nights at Silverbird Cinema or going out for some late night partying, you will get there for less!
