What Is Fare Splitting?

Fare splitting is simply splitting the cost of the fare between everyone who's taking the ride. The Uber app has a fare splitting feature built in, making it very easy to do.

How To Split the Fare

To split an Uber fare between multiple riders, follow these instructions:

  1. Open the Uber app.
  2. Request a ride, following the normal procedure.
  3. Swipe up from the bottom of the app.
  4. Tap on your chosen payment method.
  5. Tap on Split Fare.
  6. Enter the names or phone numbers of the other riders. They will each be sent an invitation to split the fare.
  7. Ask everyone to accept the invitation and follow the instructions they are sent.

The cost of the ride will be split evenly between everyone who accepts your invitation. Each rider who participates in the fare splitting will be charged a fare splitting fee of 25 cents.

Everyone who is sharing the fare needs to have the Uber app.

Some older app versions may not allow you to access the fare-splitting feature.

Please note that you can't use the fare splitting feature with Apple Pay. If you want to split the fare, you must use a different payment method.

Contacting Uber

If you have questions about splitting fares or anything else, you can get answers from an Uber representative. Post your questions on Uber's help forum to get help. There are no other online contact options and no phone contact option.
