We’ll have plenty of supply on the road to get you home before you turn into a pumpkin. Keep in mind, Surge Pricing will be in effect to ensure reliability! Why?

  • Most trick or treaters will be trying to ride Uber starting at 7 pm. Be sure to request your ride early!
  • Know before you go – check out our Fare Quote tool in the app before you ride.
