Uber is experimenting with a new feature that aims to reduce cancellations as a result of customers bringing a pet along for the ride. Many times drivers will cancel rides when someone has a pet. To help eliminate that issue, now riders can select Uber Pet, which comes with a surcharge of $3 to $5. Now you can travel with your pets with pet friendly drivers.
Uber Pet will be available to all customers starting on October 16th in the following cities: Austin, Denver, Nashville, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tampa Bay. Oct 16th.
Hopefully this feature will roll out nationwide because we love this and think it's a great idea!
