Family Profiles

You can pay for your loved ones and conveniently track their status and ETA when you invite them to join your Family Profile.

Why it's helpful

Register multiple accounts

Your babysitter. Your assistant. Your second cousin. We call it Family Profiles, but who you add is up to you.

Keep your credit card details

Even though your loved ones can use Family Profiles as their payment method, your credit card information is never revealed.

How it works for the Family Profile organizer

Add contacts

Tap to open the app, go to the menu, choose Settings, scroll down to Set up your family, and select the qualifying contacts you would like to add. Once added, the Family Profile rider will receive an invitation request.

Please note: you must have the latest version of the app to use Family Profiles.

Have loved ones request rides

Once your invitee accepts, they can begin requesting rides from their own phone using the Family Profile as their payment method.

Get billed automatically

The cost of the trip will be billed to the Family Profile, and the organizer will receive a receipt for every ride.
