Ride with Uber, Pay with Google
With Uber, you’ve always been able to leave your wallet behind. But now, you can keep it on your phone, and not have to carry anything extra. Even if you left your wallet in El Segundo, and got gotta get it, you can now sign up for Uber through Google Wallet and head back to that nice little pub.
That’s right – Uber is announcing a new integration with Google Wallet, which means that even if your wallet looks like this, you don’t need to worry about it.
With this integration, signing in and signing up on our Android app is faster than ever. Here’s how it works:
*at this time, Google Wallet is only available to Android users in the US. We’re always adding features for our users across countries and platforms as they become available.
We’re proud to be demonstrating this integration with other great partners at the annual Google I/O conference this week. If you’re in San Francisco, please stop by to say hello.

We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
