Sometimes we need to book a ride for others who doesn’t have cab applications on their phones or for those who don’t know technology at all. To assist in such a situations, Uber introduced a new feature called “Request a Ride for Others.”
To benefit from the new functionality, you must have the latest version of Uber application installed on your phone. Whenever you want to book a ride for your friend or relative, select the exact location where the trip has to begin, and add the person phone number from your phone book. Immediately the trip will be confirmed, and driver coordinates with the passenger.
The person for whom you booked ride will get two separate messages, one is with the driver details and the second one consists the tracking link of the vehicle. You can also track the entire trip through the Uber application installed on your phone. This feature is only available in India.
Installing Uber app and maintaining mobile data balance is problematic for a lot of people. The “Request a Ride for Others” feature helps them in getting cabs without any app or phone.
