TL;DR – Now you can take your goldfish for walks.
uberPET, a pet-friendly vehicle option for riders who need to travel around Singapore with their pets on board will launch on Friday, 20 October 2017,
According to Uber, they have received feedback from riders that it can be a challenge to get a ride with their pet, as certain modes of transport do not allow animals to travel on board. uberPET will hence provide an option for pet owners to enjoy a seamless, enjoyable experience with drivers who are aware that they will be accompanied by a pet on board. This includes common household pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles, hamsters, birds in cages and fish in bowls or plastic bags.
With uberPET, riders can be assured that their driver is comfortable to have pets on the ride. All uberX driver-partners on uberPET have opted into this programme and understand that there will be an animal on board.
To book a ride, simply
- Enter your destination in the ‘Where to’ section of the Uber app
- Scroll right to ‘More’ and tap ‘uberPET’
- Tap ‘Confirm uberPET’
Additionally, Singapore is the first city in Asia to launch uberPET and Uber will be waiving off the $2 booking fee till December 31, 2017.
