Request a ride for someone else
For times when you want to send your friends and family home–or pick them up–you can request a ride 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? 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.
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 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.
Get more from your ride
Download the app and set up your account so you’re ready the next time you need a ride.
This feature is not available in the Uber Lite app. Options vary based on your city and region.
