7 Ways For Uber Passengers To Make Their Ride Better

Transcript:

Hi. I’m Richard. I’m an Uber driver. I’ve got a few tips for passengers to make their Uber experience a little better.

When you call for an Uber, use a street address when requesting your pickup point. Uber Drivers use Google Maps, mostly. If you know that people have trouble finding the location when using Google, then a pin on the map might be preferable. An address is usually sufficient, however.

If you do set a pin, be careful. Sometimes pins can skid off away from where you think their going to be. Double-check that it’s placed correctly before you request your ride. Also, text or call your driver if you think you can help them to reach you more easily.

If you’re going to a large event, it’s a great idea to use Uber, because you don’t have to worry about parking. It’s just a lot less hassle. There’s always the chance that you’ll get stuck in a lot of traffic if your destination is in the city or particularly popular. If this is the case, you can consider asking the driver if you can walk the rest of the journey. This way you’ll not only save yourself some time but also help the driver out because they won’t need to renegotiate the traffic after the drop-off. You shouldn’t feel in any pressure to this, however. If the neighborhood is unfamiliar or the weather is bad then feel free to stay in the comfort of the cab.

When it’s time to leave after the event you might also consider walking a few blocks away from that venue. woman reading and drinking coffee in uberCan you imagine having a dozen Uber cars showing up at once? Who’s going to know which car is theirs? If you arrange your pickup a block or two away your return journey will probably be quicker (and cheaper).

Also, make sure you request the right size car. UberX is only good for four passengers. If you have a larger party, you might want to consider ordering an Uber XL, or a second Uber car.

Let your driver know your route preference. If you don’t like being on the freeway, or there’s something else that would make you more comfortable just let them know.

Don’t hesitate to inform your driver if you’re uncomfortable in the car.  If it’s too warm or too hot just ask them politely to change their climate control settings. If you don’t like the music that they’re playing, or if you’d rather have silence, just let them know. It’s your ride after all.

Finally, should you tip your driver? Well, your driver is required to say that a tip is never required or expected, but if you insist, I’m sure they’ll really appreciate it.
