Latest feature updates from Uber for Business
Uber for Business brings the best of Uber to organizations around the globe with a single seamless platform to help you better support and engage the people you employ and serve. We’re continually reviewing and expanding the platform’s capabilities with you in mind, to better meet your unique business needs.
In the past 3 months, we’ve launched numerous products and features rooted in a common goal: helping you finish the year strong. Here’s everything that's new:
Schedule recurring orders through meal planning: Schedule and manage recurring group orders for daily in-office lunches for the whole team. Meal planning with Uber Eats simplifies daily ordering for groups, reduces food waste, and satisfies appetites. Learn more about meal planning here.
Energize employees with late-night meals: Keep your late-night team fueled with options for their favorite meals. Now set time, day, budget, and item restrictions on a meal program.
Simplify group ordering: Order in-office meals for your team by selecting a group size and choosing from a curated list of restaurants that offer “boxed catering”. Group orders are ideal for occasional use, such as a celebration, temporary incentives to encourage a return to office, and more.
- Use Uber Charter on business profiles: Soon, you’ll be able to book charter buses for corporate events or large group gatherings. Create magical in-person moments to celebrate your team. Learn more about Uber Charter here.¹ Coming soon.
- Use vouchers at scale with locked templates: Create predefined voucher templates for coordinators, increasing control over your spending and simplifying distribution. Use locked voucher templates and preset the voucher type, dollar value, and location.
- Add a personalized message: Soon, you can add a customized message for voucher recipients. Express yourself in multiple languages or by using emojis, with up to 300 characters. Share context or convey heartfelt messages to create a memorable experience for employees, customers, or clients. Learn more here. Coming soon.
Buy gift cards from your dashboard: Admins can now purchase gift cards directly from the Uber for Business dashboard. Provide a token of appreciation or a gesture of thanks to customers, clients, or employees in just a few steps.

View support ticket history: You can now access and reopen previously closed support tickets under “Contact center” within the Help section of the Uber for Business dashboard. You will also receive timely notifications for updates to existing tickets.
Offer new employee payment solutions: Employees can now use Uber Cash and iDEAL as a secondary payment method if their ride or meal exceeds their spending cap.
Enable riders to cancel trips: Rides requested through Central can now be canceled by riders through SMS.³ This helps reduce missed rides during times that coordinators are unable to assist, such as late at night or over the weekend.
Live trip tracking on web On rides requested through Central, riders who don’t have the Uber app will receive an SMS message containing a link that will open a map in a web browser, allowing them to check their exact pickup location and track their trip in real time.
