How do I request a ride for someone else?

Uber Central lets you book rides for clients, guests or employees on mobile, tablet or desktop.

To order a ride:

  1. Sign in to central.uber.com or select Arrange Rides at the top of the admin dashboard. Only admins can access Uber Central from the dashboard. Coordinators must go to central.uber.com.
  2. In the menu to the left, choose a pickup option for your rider:
    1. Now: Your rider will be picked up immediately
    2. Flexible: Your rider will receive a text link that allows them to request a ride when they’re ready (the link will expire at 11:59pm on the day you select)
  3. Provide the rider information, pickup and dropoff locations and vehicle class. You must add the rider’s mobile phone number to ensure they receive a text message with the trip details.
  4. Select the button at the bottom of the menu to request or schedule the ride, or Save as draft to save the ride request.
