What to communicate with your riders
No app required
Riders won’t need to use the Uber app or have an Uber account. They’ll receive a text with trip details. If those details are incorrect, they'll need to tell you immediately so you can edit the ride.
Know the ride type
Make sure the rider knows whether you’re requesting a Scheduled or Flexible Ride. A Scheduled Ride will be sent at a fixed time, so they’ll need to be ready for it. With a Flexible Ride, the rider will request the ride when they’re ready.
Be ready to go
Drivers will only wait up to 5 minutes at the appointed pickup spot, so riders should be there before requesting the ride. If the driver cancels the trip (before or after arriving at the pickup location), the rider should contact you to request another ride.
Check the ride, every time
Make sure the rider gets in the right car. Riders should use the trip details link to match the license plate, car model and color, and driver photo.
The route and payment are set
The driver will have the pickup and dropoff locations, so the rider won’t need to provide directions. Payments will be taken care of by your organization.
