Your Multiple Uber Stop Questions Answered

When scheduling multiple stops on your Uber app or on your desktop, it can be confusing trying to understand the ins and outs. Here are some of the most common questions about scheduling multiple stops and their answers.

Can Uber Make Multiple Stops?

With Uber, you can add up to two additional stops for your trip. If you need to pick up and drop off a friend, this is the perfect way to do so, all while getting where you need to go too.

When Can You Add Extra Stops?

You can add multiple stops with Uber either before your trip or during your trip. You can easily add, change, or remove additional stops while on the go.

Although Uber is available in most cities, it's important to check your app to ensure the multiple stops feature is available in your location. It's also important to make sure the stop option is available 24/7 in your location, depending on your time of travel.

How Much Do Multiple Stops Cost?

According to Uber, your fare will automatically adjust based on your trip details. This means, as you remove or add stops, your fare will adjust accordingly. These rates are based on time and distance.

You can also use the split fare feature to split the cost between you and a friend, making it easy to share the cost of your ride.

Although you can split the cost of the entire ride, you can't split the cost of each stop.

How to Add a Stop on Uber Before Your Trip

Adding multiple stops to your Uber trip before you go or while on the go is easy using the Uber app. Simply download the app to your smartphone and create an account. Once your account is created, you'll be ready to book your first trip. If you're a returning user, you're already ready to go.

  1. Open the Uber app on your smartphone.

  2. In the Where to box, enter your destination.

    Remember to keep your stops to three minutes or less as a courtesy for your driver's time. If it takes longer than this, your fare may change to accommodate.

  4. Enter your stops as you would your destination; you can add up to two additional stops to your trip. Once you've added your stops, tap Done at the bottom of your screen to continue booking your trip.

  5. Once you're done, tap Confirm at the bottom of the screen to confirm your Uber ride.

    Be sure to add your payment method to the Uber app prior to booking your trip. If you don't, you'll be asked to do so before you can confirm your trip.

How to Add Multiple Uber Stops During Your Trip

If you decide to add a stop while you're traveling with your driver, you can do so by accessing the homepage on your Uber app. Here, you can add, change, or remove a stop using your on-trip screen, which appears as you travel.

You don't have to worry about notifying your Uber driver of your stop addition or removal. The route is automatically updated for them, giving you a smooth trip to your destination.
