Create an uber account

Uber is an on-demand car service that allows you to request private drivers through applications for iPhone and Android devices. The service utilizes dispatch software to send the nearest driver to your location. Don't be fooled into thinking this is some sort of shared ride or cab service - Uber will send you a private taxi-style car. The service provides a cashless solution that charges your ride directly to the credit card on file with your account.

    Check the upfront pricing. The price for each vehicle type will be displayed underneath it. This fare is based on current traffic and surge pricing. This is the exact fare you'll pay when you order the ride.
    • Upfront pricing is not available for all ride types. Other vehicles may only offer fare estimates.[1]
    • Uber charges are based on a combination of time and distance. If the car is traveling under 11 mph (18 km/h), you will be charged by the minute, and if you are traveling over 11 mph (18 km/h), you will be charged by the mile. You will also have to pay a base rate, that varies by location. Fares are different in every city, so be sure to check the Uber website or use an online fare estimator. All cities have a minimum fare.

    Wait in front of your exact street address for your ride. Do not go back in if your car is coming and do not walk to an alternate location as your driver will not know where you are and will lose valuable time (yours) searching for you. You will be given an estimation on how long your car will take to show up. If there was no car available, try again in a few minutes, as a driver may have dropped their passengers off and become available.
    • The Uber app will provide you with the phone number of your driver. You can use this contact the driver if you have any special considerations.
    • If you need to cancel your reservation, you will be charged a $5-$10 fee if you cancel after five minutes.
    • Average pickup times vary by city, time, and amount of business.

    Pay through the Uber app. All fare payments are handled automatically by the Uber service and your payment method on file. You can add a credit or debit card, link your PayPal account, use Android or Apple Pay, or use other regional options.
    • You do not need to tip Uber services, including UberX, but tips are appreciated. Note there is no tip included in your payment for any service other than Uber TAXI.[2]
    • You can change the default tip for taxi service, which is set at 20%, on the Uber website. Log in and open the Billing section to change the default tip.

    Rate your ride. You'll be asked to rate your ride after you reach your destination. Be aware that a 4 star rating or lower will damage your driver and make fewer drivers available the next time you call. Uber only recognizes a 5 star rating as a positive one. Any number less than 5 may harm your driver's service.
