Uber has opened the door for customers that wanted a ride around town with their pet, but couldn’t before. This will come in handy for those living in the city who need to get pets to the vet or groomer. Introducing, Uber Pet. It’s a new feature in the app to inform the driver you’ll be toted around your pet…which all household pets are accepted.
It’s not free…you’ll see “a significant portion” of the $3-5 surcharge added to the trip. We have to wait a bit for this feature to be added locally. Uber Pet rolls out on October 16 in Austin, Denver, Nashville, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tampa Bay.
