How to use the Uber app
Enter your destination
Open the app and enter where you’re going in the Where to? box. Tap to confirm your pickup location and tap Confirm again to be matched to a driver nearby.
Meet your driver
You can track their arrival on the map. When they’re a few minutes away, wait for them at your pickup location.
Check your ride
Every time you take a trip with Uber, please make sure you’re getting into the right car with the right driver by matching the license plate, car make and model, and driver photo with what’s provided in your app.
Uber trips can only be requested through the app, so never get in a car where the vehicle or driver identity doesn't match what’s displayed in your app.
Sit back and relax
When you arrive, payment is easy. Depending on your region, you have options. Use cash or a payment method like a credit card or Uber Cash balance.
Rate your trip
Let us know how your trip went. You can also give your driver a compliment or add a tip in the app.
Smooth rides from start to finish
Upfront pricing in real time
Before you confirm a trip, see price estimates so you don’t have to guess and so you can compare costs to find the right ride, every time.
Perfect your pickup
When you request a ride, the app automatically suggests a convenient place to meet your driver. To adjust your location, just type in a new address or drag your pin on the map within the gray circle.
Get to know the person behind the wheel
Check Driver Profiles in the app to see fun facts about your driver, including ratings and compliments.
