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.

What's New in Version 3.225.3
Uber relies on location services to ensure safe and accurate rides. In this latest version of the app, you’ll now be asked to allow location information collection from the time you request a ride through up to five minutes after it ends. This helps identify better pickup and dropoff points and helps customer service if you ever need to contact us about a trip. You’ll always be in control over what location information is shared and can adjust this at any time in your device settings.
Overcharges everyday and lousy support...
I've been commuting to work and back everyday using Uber. Off late there must have been some update on their routes/map. Uber wrongly charges me Rider Fees on my daily commute everyday even though there are no tolls or airport charges on my route. And everyday I have fight with uber support to get a refund on these rider fees.
I have experienced some bad support in the past but Uber support takes the cake as the worst I've ever encountered. Everyday I raise the complaint that I've been overcharged. It takes atleast 3 or 4 attempts to make them understand the same problem. You'd surprised if I paste some of their responses. Totally irrelevant. It's like they aren't even reading the issue. Then if I'm lucky, someone gets it and provides me the refund of the wrong charge.
But none of them tries to fix the problem from occurring again. They simply ignore the problem. They don't escalate the issue. They don't bother to change or update their route with the correct information. Really sic! Imagine same error everyday and same complaint everyday since the last 1 month. Horrible support!!
And I won't be surprised if they try to drown this review with multiple coupon posts, like they've done with other negative reviews.
Not updating till till I can choose location choice
So I updated and found out that I can not set location as when in use and has to be always. Disabling the location makes no sense for Uber as how will it know my location for pick ups.
So fortunately I found an old copy of the app which I had downloaded on my PC and decided to install it. Not updating the app till it gives the option back and in case it stops one day. I would prefer my battery life on a daily basis over getting a cab. I can use alternatives.
Update: so in spite of what they say, Uber still uses your gps always which is a big battery hogger. Please don't deceive users by saying that you give them control over their location usage when only option is always or never.
Uber is worst at its service
Never witnessed such a yuck 🤢 worst service in the world. Uber charges higher fare. Coupons that are shared will not work. When asked with help service, blacklist the customer. Later change the coupon terms and say it's for first time users and not for you. Never listens to customer. Always says you violated the uber service. Don't understand which is that service I always violate. They don't even say that to customers, because there no such things. They always blame system even though they created the system.
Worlds Worstedt Cab Service provider is uber. They don't even deserve 1rating. I can't give less than that.
