Folks, I am a parent that needs an Uber ride from SFO to Cupertino at 9:00am on Sunday (Dec 30th). We have a 2 yr old who needs a car seat. Uber help says that I can request a car seat using the app by selecting UberX. I do not see any such option on my app. Call to Uber hotline was useless :frown:

What are my options? How can I make sure I get a Uber with a carseat? Total 4 passengers.

Your best bet just to make a cash agreement with someone here. Those drivers that sit in lot... trust me you don’t want none of that

That is hilarious that support told u that. Driver support is total fiction too.
There's no such thing. I'm not saying there may not be some individual out there who drives Uber & has a car seat in their car, but there's no such thing as toggling on "I have car seat" & then riders are able to request a car seat ride.

Not to mention Uber doesn't pay enuff for us to want to be on the system as a car seat ride if it did exist. If I had a car seat & so a request comes in from 10 mins away cuz I'm the closest with a car seat, I'm not driving that far to get someone. Most rides pay $3-8. If they take longer than 10 mins from start to finish I'm on a bad mood (oh crap, no wonder I'm always in a bad mood, I need to fix my life). & if they're going far away that's even worse, cuz with the latest pay cut those rides pay even less & leave us outside the city we're trying to work in. Zero pay to drive back.


Please leave. If ur the 87% of riders who can't tip, we hate you. You've invaded our space here where we commiserate.

He's using Uber. He isn't trying to pay the full car service cost of someone agreeing to drive to Cupertino to pick him up & take him to his special destination. Or vice versa I guess if I'd read better the first time

I do carry a compact booster seat suitable for toddlers.(about $20)
Do not carry a bulky infant seat, as that would eat into trunk space.

Joke is funny. I spent my childhood riding on the floor of the car because there were five kids total.

But your request begs the question-how on earth are you on an airplane without a car seat coming to California where car seats are the law.

FYI-many drivers will just take the kid who’s not in the car seat because the ticket is on you and not the driver. Just keep requesting until you find one of them

I've done a couple of rides in the last few days where shortly after I accept the ping, I get a text from the rider that just says "no" or "none." I asked one of them what this was about, and he said he was responding to the app asking if there were any special needs for this trip, or something to that effect. Maybe this would be where you would say you need a kid seat?

They come all the time from countries where no car seat is required.
