Uber is one of the most popular peer-to-peer ridesharing, food delivery, and transportation network industry. With the Uber App, you can get a comprehensive information about the driver-partner with whom you will ride, including first name, vehicle type, and license plate number.
Ride-hailing and payment are all handled through a smartphone app, and you needn’t handle cash or even offer tips to your Uber driver.
Uber is in 377 major cities around the world. Whether you’re travelling to Seattle, Dubai, Tokyo, London, Paris, Montreal, Nigeria or Chicago, you can expect Uber rides to be available in those cities and other major metro centres.
How Does Uber Drive Mobile App Works?
- Install the app on your smartphone and create an online Uber account. Your credit card will be attached to your account, so you never need to handle any cash.
- When you need a ride, use the app to tell Uber your pickup location. Your phone GPS can help you with this. There are also text message and mobile website alternatives to using the app.
- Uber will text you to confirm how many minutes you will wait. Rides are commonly 3 to 10 minutes away in major centres.
- Uber will then text you when the ride has arrived. The Uber app will also show you details of the driver, his/her name and photo, and the type of car he/she drives.
- Take the ride, optionally sharing with any other Uber users who can split the fare electronically with you.
- Payment is handled invisibly, with no tip required. You just step out of the car at the end and wave thank you.
- After your ride, you rate the driver on a scale of 1 to 5 (politeness, safety, cleanliness). Similarly, the driver rates you from 1 to 5 (politeness).
Note: You can also request a ride on their behalf. When you set a pickup location that is not your current location, the app will ask if this ride is for someone else. When you select yes, you will be asked to select the person’s information from your contacts list. Uber will then send a text message to the rider with the name of the car and the license plate number, as well as other important information about the ride.

This feature costs an additional token.
