Splitting a fare with a friend

During a trip, the Split Fare feature allows you to divide the trip fare equally between riders. To split a fare:

1. Request a ride.
2. Select Split Fare at the bottom of your screen.
3. Enter the names or phone numbers of other riders.

If you're using the new app:
1. Request a ride.
2. Swipe up from the bottom of the app and tap your selected payment method.
3. Tap Split Fare
4. Enter the names or phone numbers of other riders.

Everyone you invite is sent a notification request to accept your split fare. Trip fare is then divided equally among riders who accept and you.

Note that when a fare is split, each participating rider is charged a 25 cents fee. Your receipt will show the total fare split fee for all riders

If a rider chooses not to accept split fare or doesn't have a valid payment method, you'll be charged for both your portion and theirs. Active promotions on your account only apply to your share of the fare.

Split fare may not be available for all Uber options. Please note that we're unable to split a fare after the trip has ended.

Note: Apple Pay may not work on split fares. If you use Apple Pay but want to split a fare, you may need to use another payment method. You can switch back to Apple Pay on your next trip.
