Here are a few other tips offered by Uber driver-partners and riders that you might find helpful.
Accepted a trip but can’t find your rider? The app lets you call or send a text to them.
When your rider gets in the car, ask their name to make sure you’ve got the right person.
Anytime you want to see an overview of the whole route, you can tap the map to zoom out.
Your Driver app has a built-in map and directions, but you can also navigate with other apps while driving with Uber.
To set your preferred navigation app, tap your profile picture in the upper right corner. Then tap Account, App Settings, and Navigation.
You can report issues with your rider by tapping Help at the top, followed by Trip Issues and Adjustments.
You can cancel a trip before or after a pickup. . The best way to avoid taking trips you don’t want is to go offline when you’re no longer available.
Just tap Go Offline on the map when you don’t want to get trip requests anymore.
You may occasionally get a ride request with a destination that’s far away. You'll see “Long trip” with an estimated trip time at the bottom of your screen when one of these requests is sent to you.
If a trip like this is farther than you want to drive, you can always decline. The request will automatically be sent to another driver nearby.
UberPool is a carpooling option available in many cities. If Pool is offered in your city, you'll pick up different riders along your route at multiple pickup locations—up to 2 people per location.
When you drive with Pool, you're receiving fares from everyone, from your first pickup to the last rider dropped off. This reduces time spent waiting for trip requests or traveling to a new location.
