Using The Driver Application

Texting Your Passenger

This is one of the ways of telling your passenger that you are around the corner. It helps them to locate your car in busy areas. To do this just click on the clipboard icon which is in the upper left corner. You will see a contact button. On certain occasions of this application, tapping the contact will show you which of the number and options for calling and messaging. You can send them a text by tapping the call button so as to copy the number into the dial screen of your phone. Majority of the phones have a dialer button to move the number into the text message. Go to the messaging or menu icon on your screen.

Note that in certain markets, Uber makes use of static VOIP number for all the passengers. You can text or call one static number each time you are taking up a passenger, simply dial or text the static number and Uber will forward your call or text to your current customer. One good thing about this is that the number can be saved into your contacts.
