Fare Splitting = Fair Splitting

It’s been said that 4 out of 3 people can’t do fractions. At Uber, we love math (we have a whole team dedicated to it!) but we understand that not everyone does. So we’re going to do the long division for you.



To split a fare, you…

  1. Request a ride
  2. Tap the “up arrow” icon next to your driver’s info
  3. Select “Split Fare”
  4. Choose your friends
  5. Tap “Send”

Your friend(s)…

  1. Tap the link in the text message from Uber
  2. Your friends who don’t have an Uber account will be prompted to download the app and sign up
  3. Your Uber-savvy friends will be taken directly to the Uber app
  4. Your friends will confirm they want to split your fare

Then let Uber take care of the rest!


Simplify your life and your fractions. Use fare splitting anytime, anywhere and with anyone:

  • That friend who conveniently “forgets” to pay you back
  • Saturday night with your entourage (an SUV split six ways = an 83.33333% discount!)
  • The couple that has to split everything down the middle

It’s a simple formula: Uber + Friends = :)

Math is hard, Uber isn’t.
