Announcing uberTAXI Van!
If you’ve ever needed a ride, you’ll understand that sometimes you need to bring along the whole ohana. Until now, uberTAXI in Honolulu has only offered you a max of 4 passengers. That’s all about to change.
uberTAXI Van Has Room For The Whole Ohana!
Starting today, you can request an uberTAXI Van with room for up to 6 passengers. Just toggle over to TAXI Van and request! This assures you’ll get a ride for a party of 6, with one of the top taxi drivers in Honolulu. Best of all, there is no additional charge for an uberTAXI Van! With this new option in your app, you’ll be sure to get everyone where they need to go, seamlessly.
uberTAXI Van Pro Tip:
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.
SPLIT YOUR FARE WITH FRIENDS USING THE LATEST UBER APP!
To split a fare, you…
- Request a ride
- Tap the “up arrow” icon next to your driver’s info
- Select “Split Fare”
- Choose your friends
- Tap “Send”
- Tap the link in the text message from Uber
- Your friends who don’t have an Uber account will be prompted to download the app and sign up

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.
