Designed to help keep you moving
Masks are optional* but recommended
The CDC no longer requires riders and drivers to wear masks. However, we recommend you wear a mask when using Uber.
Please check your local requirements regarding COVID-19 safety protocols, as some places still require masking on rideshare trips. Everyone using the Uber platform is required to comply with applicable laws and regulations while doing so. See terms*
Request one seat only
You can request one seat only with UberX Share. If you're riding with a friend or a group of friends, consider requesting UberX or UberXL. For now, you may share the ride with one other co-rider at a time.
Updating our front seat policy
You will no longer be required to sit in the back seat. However, to give your driver some space, we ask that you use the front seat only if you need it.
Be a 5-star rider
Our guidelines ask you to treat drivers and co-riders with respect, follow the law, and help keep one another safe. Not following any of our Community Guidelines may result in the loss of access to your Uber accounts.
How UberX Share works
Open the Uber app, enter your destination, and scroll down to the UberX Share ride option.
The app will try to match your car with other riders heading your way. Get additional savings if you’re matched with a co-rider. See terms.**
3. Hop out
If your trip was 5 stars, consider saying thanks and tipping your driver in the app after your trip.
Frequently asked questions
- How many seats can I request on UberX Share?
You can only request one seat on UberX Share. If you're riding with a friend or a group of friends, please request UberX or UberXL.
- Is there a limit to how many people will share my trip?
At any given point during your trip, you may be sharing the trip with one other rider. If a co-rider is dropped off before you, it’s possible the app will search for another co-rider, but it’s designed to only look for people going your way.
- How long will it take to pick up other riders?
UberX Share is designed to add no more than 8 minutes to your trip (note: because of traffic and other possible delays, we cannot guarantee arrival times). You’ll always see your estimated arrival time in the app as you ride.
- I was picked up first. Why was I dropped off second?
Pickup and dropoff order is determined by where your destination falls along the route, rather than the order of who was picked up first.
- What if my co-rider takes us out of the way?
The app matches you with riders going your way to help make sure any additional pickups won’t increase your estimated arrival time.
- Is wearing a mask optional?
Today masks are optional but recommended for all riders and drivers. The CDC still recommends masks when using indoor transportation to help ensure safety for everyone.
Additionally, please check your local requirements regarding COVID-19 safety protocols as some places still require masking on rideshare trips. Everyone using the Uber platform is required to comply with applicable laws and regulations while doing so.
- What if my co-rider is not wearing a mask?
Although mask wearing is currently optional, we know that there are many reasons people may choose to wear one or not. Please be considerate of the needs of your fellow riders during your route. We’re all in this together.
- Is there room for my luggage?
It depends on the space in the car and the number of riders. If you’re traveling with luggage, we recommend requesting an UberX ride instead of an UberX Share ride.
