The ride options shown on this page are a mere sample of services you can hire through Uber, and some of them might not be available where you use the app. If you check your city’s web page or look in the app, you will be able to see what types of rides you can request from it.
Why ride with Uber WAV
Fast, flexible rides
When and where WAV is available, request a ride on demand that works around your life, not the other way around.
Trips that fit your budget
The price of an Uber WAV ride is comparable to UberX, our basic ride option.
Specialized drivers to assist you
Every person driving with Uber WAV has completed a certification course offered by a third party to help you enter and exit the vehicle.*
How to ride with WAV
Open the app and enter your destination in the "Where to?" box. Once you confirm your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select WAV at the bottom of your screen (a promo code is required in some cities). Then tap Confirm WAV.
If a WAV driver is available and accepts your ride request, you’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map.
Check that the vehicle details match what you see in the app before getting in your WAV.
Your driver has your destination and directions for the fastest way to get there, but you can always request a specific route.
3. Exit the vehicle
You'll be automatically charged through your payment method on file, so you can exit your WAV as soon as you arrive.
Remember to rate your driver to help keep Uber safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Frequently asked questions
- Is my service animal allowed in the car with me?
- Can I bring companions on an Uber WAV trip with me?
Yes. You can bring as many companions as there are seats with seat belts available in the car.
- Can I request an Uber WAV trip for a family member or friend?
Simply set your pickup location to their pickup spot and choose the Uber WAV option, where available. Request a ride, then get in touch with your driver through the app to let them know they’ll be picking up someone else. You can then share the trip information with your friend or family member so they can track the driver’s location.
