TAMPA, Fla. — Uber is offering a new feature here in the Tampa Bay area for those who want to ride with their pets, according to a report from TechCrunch.
The rideshare company launched a pilot program called “Uber Pets.” Passengers who use the feature can bring any household pets with them on their trip.
A surcharge between $3 to $5 is added to the ride. Drivers can opt in or out of the feature.
This pilot program only applies for non-service animals. Riders with service animals will not be issued a surcharge.
