What is UberPEDAL? Want to drive for Uber? Sign up here for my cash bonus.
UberPEDAL is the same great Uber service that anybody can request via the app on their phone, but with an added bonus: a $5 surcharge will get you a driver with a car equipped with a Saris bike rack. This new feature means that riders, if they request an UberPEDAL, can now attach their bikes to their Uber.
UberPEDAL uses Saris bike racks, some of the best American-made bike racks on the market to ensure your bicycle gets from Point A to Point B safely. These bike racks are able to hold two bikes.
Conveniently, UberPEDAL rides are identical to uberX rides, but with a $5 surcharge – that’s it!
Lastly, it is important to remember that UberPEDAL drivers are of limited supply. Remain patient and remember that the downtown core of your city will have to best reliability when it comes to availability of UberPEDAL drivers.
How To Request An UberPEDAL
Requesting an UberPEDAL is as simple as requesting a regular bar ride.
Simply open your app
tap the person icon in the top left corner of the screen
and select ‘Promotions.’
Riders must then input the promo code “PEDAL” to unlock the specialized UberPEDAL vehicle screen.
From there, riders must select an “uberX” ride and then select the PEDAL option.
To finish off the process, hit Request and prepare for your trip!
*Note: As a nice gesture to your Uber driver, make sure you request a pickup and drop off area that the driver has room to safely pull over and, and enough room for you to attach your bike rack. Loading zones and parking areas generally work best for everyone involved.
