Rider Question: How Far Will Uber Drive?
Answer: Although there is no specific limit on the exact distance you travel during a trip on Uber, trips may end automatically 4 hours after starting. Your Uber driver will be notified by the app whenever your trip is about to reach its time limit and end.
In case, the trip ends automatically, you can always request a new ride if you would like to continue.
It is advisable to inform the driver if you are intending on traveling a long distance.
This is simply because many Uber drivers need to go back home after taking you to your destination, and thus, it’s courteous to give them an intimation before deciding on a long trip.
Please note that Uber cannot adjust fares if the ride is continued after the app has ended the trip. If you do want to continue after the trip ends, please do not hesitate to request a new ride.
A nearby driver will receive your new trip request, and respond accordingly. In most case the responding driver will be the same driver.
