For times when you want to send your friends and family back home–or pick them up–you can request a ride for other adults through your app.
There’s no need for them to have the app themselves. Simply request a pickup and Uber will text them important trip details.
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.
Grandma doesn’t have a smartphone? Mom needs a ride from the airport? Your friend got a little too happy at happy hour? Send them a reliable ride to their destination. It’s always appreciated.
Tap to open the app, then tap Where to?
Above the address box, you’ll see a scroll-down option where you can make your selection.
The person you request for will receive a text message with important trip details like ETA, car type, and the driver’s contact info, so they can coordinate with the driver directly should they need to get in touch.
When you schedule a ride using the Scheduled Ride function the Uber app will make a request on your behalf ahead of your scheduled pickup window to try to ensure that you have a ride available. Use of the Scheduled Ride function does not guarantee that a ride will be available and/or that your driver will arrive at the specified time. Your booking is not confirmed until Uber has sent you the details of your booking and the estimated time of arrival. In the event a car is not available Uber will let you know by the end of your scheduled pickup window.
*Feature not available in the Uber Lite app. Options vary based on your city and region.
