Uber Is Testing a Dog Inclusive Riding Option

Uber Is Testing a Dog Inclusive Riding Option A report by ‘Fast Company’ recently revealed the test-launch of Uber’s latest service, UberPet, in the United States. Starting Oct. 16, UberPet will be available in a select number of cities, such as Phoenix, Arizona, Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee. UberPet was previously available in other countries, such as Brazil, Mexico and Singapore. UberPets will allow owners to bring their “household pets” along for an extra $2-$5 surcharge. Most of the surcharge will reportedly go to the driver as an incentive for them to accept rides including pets. Uber does not currently have an official policy on riders bringing their pets along on trips. Passengers are required to notify drivers and request permission, which can potentially result in repeated ride cancelations. If the test-launch is successful, Uber reportedly plans on rolling out UberPet nationwide.
