PRO TIP: Sharing rides and splitting the fare with friends are some of the handy ways to keep you moving reliably, efficiently, and more affordably. Check out our guide to split fare and other great features below.

#1 Check The Price

Remember to run a Fare Estimate in the app to get an idea of the cost before you ride. Demand will be through the roof, so be prepared for the possibility of dynamic pricing – the only surprise you need is the sound of those dance floor beats!

#2 Fare Splitting = Fair Splitting

Use the Fare Split option if you’re rolling with the entire crew, or even if it’s just you and your bestie.

#3 Confirm Your Driver

Always be sure to hop into the Uber you requested, so that you avoid taking someone else’s. Simply confirm the driver’s name, car model and license plate information listed in your app. And if you’re still not sure, you can always call your driver.

#4 Share Your ETA

Use the Share My ETA feature so your crew can track your route and expected time of arrival.  Safety is always our #1 priority, so this includes your estimated time of arrival, as well as your driver’s name and vehicle information.

Have an ULTRA-amazing festival!
