Send a ride for someone else

For times when you want to send your friends and family back home–or pick them up–you can request a ride for other adults through your app.

There’s no need for them to have the app themselves. Simply request a pickup and Uber will text them important trip details.

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

1. Open your app

Tap to open the app, then tap Where to?

2. Choose the rider

Above the address box, you’ll see a scroll-down option where you can make your selection.

3. Sit back and relax

The person you request for will receive a text message with important trip details like ETA, car type, and the driver’s contact info, so they can coordinate with the driver directly should they need to get in touch.
