Description

Uber is a ridesharing app for fast, reliable rides in minutes – day or night. There’s no need to park or wait for a taxi or bus. With Uber, you just tap to request a ride, and it’s easy to pay with credit card or cash (in selected cities only).

Whether you’re going to the airport or across town, there’s an Uber for every occasion. Uber is available in more than 500 cities worldwide – download the app and take your first trip today.

Requesting your Uber is easy – here’s how it works:
- Just open the app and tell us where you want to go.
- The app uses your location so your driver knows where to pick you up.
- You’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details, and can track their arrival on the map.
- Payment can be made by credit card, cash (in selected cities only), Apple Pay, PayPal and more.
- After the ride, you can rate your driver and provide feedback to help us improve the Uber experience. You’ll also get a receipt by email.

Need a simple way to get from A to B quickly? Take uberX, our most affordable option for individual travel.

Want to save money on your ride? Take uberPOOL – you’ll travel with other riders heading in the same direction, and enjoy a lower fare.

Want a more exclusive experience? Take a high-end vehicle with UberBLACK. And there are even more options – whether you’re travelling with a big group or need a vehicle with accessibility features.

Editors' Notes

When we need to get somewhere quickly and cheaply, this popular ride-sharing app motors to our rescue. We appreciate the variety in our vehicle choices—from budget-friendly carpools to swanky SUVs—as much as we love knowing when our ride is arriving and exactly how much it’ll cost. Heck, now we even use it as a verb: “We’re going to Uber to your place. Be right there!”

Generally good

OJAM555

The app is generally good, but there seem to be 2 problems.
The worst of these is that very often a driver seems to be allowed to accept a job whilst on the way somewhere else - and somewhere further away, not on the way towards me. And even though UBER knows this, they keep it a secret from us users so we don’t have the necessary info to decide whether to accept this situation. Let me clarify. I open the app and I see drivers very close, presumably they are available, right, or why else show me. The driver that accepts might be 3 minutes away, but then he is 4 minutes away, and then I watch as he drives further and further away. The point is that now if I cancel, I will get charged! This cannot be the best way to do this! If UBER had told me that this driver has not made his drop off yet, I could have chosen whether to accept or not. But they don’t seem to like me choosing.
Also, the pickup points are always at least 20-30 metres away from where I am, but sometimes more, so when I try to change the pickup point, it tells me that it is outside the area! And I have not taken a single step since switching on the app! So do I cancel? Or do I walk?

Great idea poor execution

I'm currently in Vietnam for a few months and was advised to get uber or grab taxi for local transport, I thought uber being the most familiar that I would use it. In practice the app for me is terrible, it asks repeatedly for me to verify my phone number and once the app is open the page to verify my phone number never appears, plus it rejects my card method of payment. Customer services say this is my bank not authorising international transactions but grab taxi works just fine, and also has the option to pay a certain amount of money in exchange for credits so your rides are already paid for in one go until you top your credits up again. So it's not my bank that's the problem, it's uber. Everyone around me, at least, finds uber frustrating and expensive compared to fares on grab taxi which I only learned existed a few days ago, but is far better than uber and does exactly the same thing just in a more efficient and user friendly manner. My first ride with uber worked fine as I paid cash, but now it wants me to verify cards that I don't even want to pay with for security reasons and won't even accept the card details and simply says "invalid" (nothing more because that would be too useful...) even if I wanted to use uber I can't, so if anyone has any issues I recommend grab, it's exactly the same service and works more smoothly (for me at least)
