What exactly is Uber?

Uber is a rideshare app that directly connects drivers with passengers, rather than through a booking taxi service. The app, which is currently available on iOS, Android & Windows, has been a huge success since its inception.

What is really cool is that the app tracks your location and connects you with the closest Uber driver in your area. Even better, you can also request a specific kind of car if you prefer, such as:

UberX – The cheapest sedan option that can fit up to 4 riders
UberXL – The cheapest SUV option that can fit up to 6 riders
LUX – The luxury sedan option that can fit up to 4 riders
LUX SUV – The luxury SUV option that can fit up to 6 riders.

How does it work?

If you are a new Uber rider, learning how to use the app can be a challenge.

First, you need to create an account. Uber will require your name, phone number, email address, and billing information.Florida Panthers Uber App

Once you’ve signed up, you will need to download and install the app for your Android, iPhone or Windows phone.

After creating and installing the app, you will see a login prompt which you can sign in with the information you provided during the Signup process.

After signing in successfully, you will need to link your preferred payment to your Uber account. You cannot use the Uber app without setting up your payment profile.

Uber will accept Apple Pay, Google Wallet, PayPal and a major credit card. Some prepaid cards are accepted, but must are not.

What’s next after creating an account?

Now you are ready to hit the road! Every time you need a ride, simply tap the Uber app on your device, choose a pickup location, get fare estimation, and then select the car service you wish to ride in (as we listed above).

Once you have tapped the last step, the Uber app will send out your request and within seconds you will be assigned a driver.

The app will show you your driver’s photo, first name, car description and tag number. With all of this information at your display it’s nearly impossible to get into the wrong Uber.

In addition to the photo and the car, the app also displays a small map showing you the location of the driver.

When it’s time to go, the app notifies you when your driver arrives and you can verify the identity of the driver who actually shows up.
