A step-by-step on how trips work
Accepting a trip
While on the road, you’ll begin to receive trip requests. Accepting a trip will show you a rider’s pickup address, location, and navigational directions to get them.
Picking up your rider
You can use the Driver app to call or message your rider. Once you’ve attempted to contact them, a 2-minute timer will begin. If the timer runs out or they cancel, you could be paid extra for your time.
Starting the trip
Once you’ve found your rider and they’re safe in your vehicle, you can verify their destination and start the trip.
Arriving at the destination
As you reach your rider’s destination, consider stopping as close as possible to their final address. Also, keep an eye out for safety hazards such as traffic, bus stops, and bike lanes.
If you ever need support while on a trip, you can reach an agent by tapping the menu icon, then selecting Help and the issue you need assistance with.
Between their pickup and destination, riders can request multiple stops. You'll be paid for each stop.
These are consecutive trips that occur when you accept a trip while finishing your current trip. The details will be added to your queue.

- What is UberX Share?
UberX Share is a carpooling option available in many cities around the world. If UberX Share is offered in your city, you may pick up additional riders along your route—only one passenger per pickup.
When you drive with UberX Share, you're receiving fares from everyone, from your first pickup to the last rider dropped off. This reduces time spent waiting for ride requests or traveling to a new location and helps you earn more efficiently.
