Trick or Treat Safely This Halloween
Every Halloween, ghosts and goblins and other creepy creatures emerge from all corners of the city for an evening of frightening fun. Between the costumes, candy and warm apple cider, having a spook-tacular Halloween is easy. Navigating the nightmarish streets on one of the busiest nights of the year, however, isn’t.
We’ve got a few tips to help you and your guests “trick or treat” safely to and from your Monster Mash.
UBER HALLOWEEN PRO TIPS
FARE SPLIT & SAVE Grab your friends, request a ride and SPLIT. An uberX ride shared among four friends in Center City could cost you as little as $2! En route to a masquerade ball? Request UberBLACK for as little as $3 per person. If you are trick or treating with up to six friends, request an SUV. Learn how to fare split here.
AVOID HIGH FARES
Demand will be high and surge pricing may kick in to encourage more drivers to get out there so that we can connect you with the most reliable rides on the road. Remember, you will always be notified when prices are higher than normal. You can also request an additional notification to be sent when surge pricing ends. And don’t forget, if one vehicle option is surging, check others!
CONFIRM YOUR DRIVER
After you request a ride, call or text your driver to confirm your location and ensure a smooth pickup. You will also see your driver’s name, picture, license plate number and vehicle type. When the car rolls up, make sure your driver’s information matches what’s in the app. If it doesn’t, don’t get in!
KEEP IT CLEAN
Let’s be honest, you wouldn’t want to ride in a car covered in Blue Man Group paint, would you? Neither do your fellow riders. Keeping the glitter and face paint off the seats will help keep more cars on the road.
LOST ITEMS & SUPPORT
Forget your magic wand in an Uber? Not to worry. Get in touch with your driver by submitting a ticket to riders.uber.com/lost. We will have 24/7 support available throughout the weekend and we will respond to your concerns ASAP.

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
