How to take trips toward a specific location

With the Driver app, you can set a destination, like your house, the store—anywhere you need to go. Then the app looks for riders traveling in the same direction whom you can pick up on your route.

Setting your preferences and destinations

Preferences and destinations are 2 features that can help you take control of how you want to earn. These features let you select and manage the types of trips you’d like to receive and where you’d like to go.

How preferences and service selection works

To get started, tap the highlighted icon on the bottom left side of your app to access your preferences. Then select the available services you want to offer.

Auto-accept will automatically accept trips for the services you’ve selected. This helps create a more seamless experience on the road and helps you not miss a trip or delivery. You can also filter requests by area, rider rating, and more.

How destinations works

You can set a destination filter to a place you’re going—like home or school—and the app will help you find trips in that direction. This helps you earn while heading where you need to go.

To do this, tap on the magnifying glass on your map screen and enter an address.

Frequently asked questions

  • Riders that the app finds for you will be going in the general direction of your destination. Plus, you can set an arrival time.

  • Driver destinations work for most trip options, including UberX, Pool, Uber Black, and more.
