Uber launches pet-friendly travel services

Uber has launched a new service that allows passengers to book their journeys with their pets.

Minicab app firm said that the service would be available in the UK starting Tuesday.

Fares for Uber Pet journeys will include a surcharge of £3.20 in London and £2 outside the capital.

This is the ideal time to take your pet on a walk.

Drivers had previously been able to decide whether passengers could travel with an animal.

Customers will be matched with drivers who can transport them with their pets.

Uber will continue to offer the same service for passengers traveling with a service dog.

Andrew Brem, general manager at Uber UK, said: “We’re really happy to be launching Uber Pet in the UK, bringing even more convenient travel options to our riders.

“With Covid-19 restrictions lifted, it’s the perfect time for new pets to get out and about again with you, no matter what your plans.”

The company will donate £1 from every Uber Pet fare to the charity All Dogs Matter.
