Can I request a ride for someone else?

Uber Central lets you coordinate rides for clients, guests or employees.

You can access Uber Central through central.uber.com on phone, tablet or desktop.

To order an Uber Central ride:

  1. Log in to your Uber for Business dashboard, and click the Uber Central tab
  2. Click Request a ride
  3. Choose the pickup option in the menu on the left for your rider –
    1. Now: Your rider is picked up immediately
    2. Future: Set up a time in the future for your rider to be picked up
    3. Flexible: Send your rider to text link that allows them to ride when they’re ready (the link expires 12 hours from the send time)
  4. Provide the rider information, pickup and dropoff locations, and vehicle class
  5. Click the button at the bottom of the menu on the left to request or schedule a ride OR save your ride request as a draft.

Important: You must add the rider’s mobile phone number because they will receive an SMS text message with trip details.
