Request a trip for someone else

For times when you want to send your friends and family home – or pick them up – you can request a trip for other adults through your app.

Why it's helpful

Enjoy the convenience

Now there’s no need to rearrange your schedule, spend time in traffic or stop what you’re doing to pick up a loved one. Save time – and your sanity.

Save the day

Grandma doesn’t have a smartphone? Mum needs picking up from the airport? Your friend got a little too happy at happy hour? Get them a reliable trip to their destination. It’s always appreciated.

How it works

Open your app

Tap to open the app, then tap Where to?

Choose the rider

Above the address box, you’ll see a scroll-down option where you can make your selection.

Sit back and relax

The person you make the request for will receive a text with important trip details like ETA, car type and the driver’s contact information, so they can coordinate with the driver directly if needed.

Sign up

Download the app and set up your account so you’re ready next time you need to take a trip.


Invite friends to use Uber and they’ll get a discount on their first trip.

This feature is not available in the Uber Lite app. Options vary based on your city and region.
