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 or cash in select cities.
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’re going.
- The app uses your location so your driver knows where to pick you up.
- You’ll see your driver’s picture, vehicle details, and can track their arrival on the map.
- Payment can be made by credit card, cash in select cities, 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.

APP needs to be fixed
I started using UBER a few weeks ago, no problems or complaints about the service and all of the drivers have been very professional and helpful...but the app is driving me up a wall. For two days, the app keeps telling me my payment is invalid. It's the same card I've been using. Scared me so bad because of all the security breaches, I called my credit card company to be sure everything was in order, everything was fine on that end. So I signed out, deleted the app, powered down my device, then powered up my device, reinstalled the app, and logged in...same error message. Four times I repeated this process! So I went online and purchased an UBER giftcard from the UBER site...same error message, payment invalid! I tried another account...same error message, payment invalid! So now I have ran out of payment options, I have spent money on a giftcard that cannot use...and I still don't have a 7:30AM ride in the morning! What really upsets me, is that I cannot find a phone number to call to ask for technical support. Please fix this!
It's just really irritating.
I had no problem with Uber until they would not let me get a ride or food because supposedly I didn't pay for an uber ride. How can I not pay for an Uber ride it's automatically taken out as soon as I order it. Anyways I didn't care I go online and try to pay it and it's not taking my card so I'm there reading it and nothing's working. I contact them and I tell them and they say I have an outstanding balance I need to pay. I ask for the information and why because nothing shows up on my end as declined. They just say the date and the car and I have an outstanding balance again basically and tells me I need to pay. ITS NIT TAKING ANY OF MY CARDS SO HOW CAN I PAY. After hours and hours they say they put a hold on my account so basically my cards cannot be used until I show them my ID with my full name proving I'm me. I have to prove I'm me just to pay you for something I don't really think I should pay for? And then they just marked it as solved so I couldn't reply back. It's just so irritating that I actually just switched to Lyft.
Finally fixed GPS tracking policy - because they had to
They finally fixed the invasive user tracking, just about one week before iOS 11 made it impossible for them to continue tracking indiscriminately. The app is fine, but the company sure knows how to look untrustworthy.
Location tracking is all or nothing with Uber. Normal apps offer "track only when using", but Uber demands "Always track". If the past year has taught us anything, it's "don't trust Uber to do the right thing".
It looks like they're not in a hurry to listen to customers' complaints, since there have been at least sixteen updates since I started paying attention to the GPS issue. They now provide prewritten "developer responses" that state "please tell us more". I think the problem is pretty clear, simply change the app to allow less invasive GPS settings, like 99% of apps in the store do.
As an aside, it also seems like they abuse the app update system. Weekly 170MB updates with no change log. That's half a gig per month, thanks guys..
Partial workaround for tracking: disable GPS for the Uber app, and only turn it back on if you absolutely need to use the app. And then turn it back off when you get to the destination.
In the meantime I've been using the friendly Uber competitor, and so far it's worked like a charm. Thanks Uber, for encouraging me to check out other apps!
