While most of Uber promotions and coupons are available to the new users, the existing users are left without any additional coupon or promotion. Well, here is good news for existing Uber riders. You can now use Google maps to request Uber Rideshare. To get started, all you have to do is open the ride services tab on Google Maps and tap on “REQUEST” to take a ride. For a limited time, many riders in the U.S. will receive $15 off their first trip using Google Maps.
When you’re on the go and looking at transportation options in Google Maps, you can now request an Uber ride directly from the Google Maps app.
It’s already been easy to compare wait times and the pricing of available Uber options, including POOL, uberX, and uberXL, in Google Maps. With the latest integration update powered by Uber’s API, you can now request a ride, see your driver en route, contact your driver, and follow your trip status — all without having to switch over to the Uber app. Plus, you can pay with your options on file with either Uber or Google.
- Open Google Maps app
- Enter address to destination
- Hit button to get directions
- Select the “Taxi” routing option (usually 3rd or 4th from the left)
- You should see a black banner that says “Book an Uber now to get $15 off”
