  • The first step is to download the app on your Android or Apple device and provide basic information including your name, phone number, and credit card number.
  • Once everything is ready, you need to enter the destination address into the box labeled “where to?” near the top of the screen. Don’t Panic if you don’t know the exact address; you can find where you need to go by entering the name of a business, like “Starbucks” or “GameStop.” Uber also lets users add shortstops to every trip.
  • Once you Confirm destination confirm your exact pickup point by dropping a blue pin on the map, and the app will tell you approximately how long it will take to get there.
  • It also provides the estimated cost of each service to verify clarity, a feature appreciated by travelers who have gotten all too used to getting overcharged by taxi drivers claiming not to have a meter. The cost of a ride depends on which service you select, and at what time of day. If lots of people request an Uber ride at the same time, the more expensive a fare gets. Uber calls this “surge pricing.”

The basic services are known as UberX, UberXL, and UberSelect, respectively. The difference lies in the price and the type of car that you will choose up.

  • UberX drivers are usually in a standard passenger car (e.g., a Honda Accord) capable of carrying up to four riders.
  • UberXL operators have a bigger model that can carry up to six passengers.
  • Finally, Uber Select is a more deluxe service Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW drivers can participate in.

Uber also offers a separate service for riders who want wheelchair-accessible vehicles, and a low-priced service named UberPool. As its name tells, UberPool is a carpooling service that lets users share the same ride. It takes longer because you’re getting from point A to point B via points C and D, but it’s also the cheapest option.

Users beware: You don’t have any idea with whom you’ll ride when using UberPool. Well, it all depends on your luck, maybe you share a car with a quiet, discreet stranger, a queasy student Or parents who think their kid screaming is adorable.


This app also provides the name of the driver and his or her rating ahead of time. It also lists the car’s make, model, color, and identification number, plus approximately how many minutes until it arrives at the pickup point. You can also tell your Uber is on your way by looking at the location of the car-shaped icon on the map.

Regardless of which service you select, there’s a bar at the top of the application that tracks the trip’s progress and the estimated time of arrival. Also, there is the option of sharing trip progress through a number of communication channels, including Fb Messenger, WhatsApp, Gmail, and an old-fashioned text message.
