Uber Shuttle Frequently Asked Questions

What is Uber Shuttle?

Uber Shuttle is a new way to enjoy a comfortable, safe, and convenient commute.

Uber Shuttle uses technology to reserve your seat on a clean, air-conditioned, and high-quality bus. When you request your ride through the app, you will see all the possible timings that you can book and will get to schedule your whole week ahead. Also, because you are sharing your rides with other Uber passengers, the price is affordable enough for everyday use, while still maintaining Uber standards.

Where is it available?

Currently, Uber Shuttle is only available in select cities in Egypt and India.

What is the pricing for a trip?

The pricing is based on the distance of your trip. Tariffs differ depending on the city.
