5 Chinese New Year survival tips you need to know

February 9, 2018 / Singapore

With Chinese New Year around the corner, it’s time to indulge in steamboat, pineapple tarts and of course, collect lots of red packets from friends and family!

As you get ready for a week of reunion dinners, mahjong sessions and quality time with your loved ones, here are some tips to make the most of your CNY celebration. 

1) Request a ride for your loved ones

Whether your reunion dinner is at ah ma‘s house or in a fancy restaurant, help your extended family get there hassle-free by requesting a ride for them! It’s an in-app feature that automatically sends the vehicle and driver details to your loved one, and their details to our driver-partner – making it easier than ever to request rides for others.

2) Ride on Uber Car Seat

Have kids? Get your children to the next house visit safe and sound with Uber Car Seat.

3) Request uberASSIST for those with special needs

If your family members require additional help, our uberASSIST vehicles accommodate folding wheelchairs, walkers, and collapsible scooters to ensure everyone can be part of the festivities. Our driver-partners have been trained to assist riders with disability and mobility challenges. So if ah gong insists on visiting to see that you’re living well, he can do so comfortably.

4) Take an uberPET, so no family member gets left behind

We know that pets are family too, so bring your furry friend along to the paw-ty with uberPET!  It is the Year of the Dog, after all.

5) Schedule your rides

Finally, if you’re packed with home visits, why not Schedule Your Ride? It’ll make sure you have enough time for everyone you love.

We hope these products and in-app features give you a peace of mind when getting to your many Chinese New Year plans with your loved ones this holiday. Have a pawsperous new year, Singapore!
