Check The Price

Demand will be through the roof, so expect dynamic pricing. Let’s toast to you running a Fare Estimate in the app before you ride. To avoid the highest fares, head to the festivities early or catch a ride right after midnight.

Split Your Fare 

Use fare split if you’re rolling with the whole party or even if it’s just you and another friend.

Confirm Your Driver 

You wouldn’t want to walk into the wrong party, so make sure you don’t walk into the wrong car. Confirm your driver’s car model and license plate in the app before you hop in your ride. And if you’re still not sure, you can always text or call your driver. Don’t forget to enter your destination once you’re in your Uber – this will lead to higher efficiency for both riders and drivers.

Keep Your Number Masked

If you can’t find your driver or want to share more pick up information, call or text through the app—your number will always stay anonymous.

Send Your Status

Let your friends count down to the moment you arrive. Send trip details, which includes your estimated time of arrival as well as your driver’s first name and vehicle information, to friends or family directly through the app.
