Uber introduces new services including Uber Shuttle, Uber Caregiver, and exclusive Costco discounts.

Share it

Uber on Wednesday announced several new product updates at the company’s annual Go-Get showcase in New York City that aim to help its customers save money on rides and food. The product updates reflect Uber’s continued push to drive growth and demand across its mobility and delivery business segments. The new features could help the company attract more riders and users to its app.

Uber Shuttle

Riders looking for a more affordable way to get to the airport, work and live events, such as sports games and concerts, can reserve seats on an Uber Shuttle. Uber has partnered with local shuttle services that will pick up riders and bring them to their destination. The shuttles will have between 14 and 55 seats, and users can track their shuttle’s location within 25 minutes of departure time. The trip won’t be impacted by surge pricing.

Uber Caregiver

Users who rely on caregivers for support in their day-to-day lives can add them directly to their profiles starting this summer. Caregivers will be able to book rides for those they care for, as well as order medical supplies and groceries on their behalf. The feature will also allow for three-way chats between drivers, riders, and caregivers. Uber Caregiver will initially support Medicaid recipients, customers aged 65 and older with Medicare Advantage, and customers with commercial insurance from their employers.

Costco on Uber Eats

Costco will be available as an on-demand option within Uber Eats in select locations across the U.S. Users can order products from Costco without a membership, but members will save between 15% and 20% compared to nonmembers. Costco members can enter their member numbers in the Uber Eats app and are eligible for 20% off of Uber One, the company’s subscription membership.

Schedule UberX Share

Uber is launching a new feature that allows users to schedule a shared ride in advance, saving users around 25% compared to a typical ride on UberX. This feature is initially launching in cities with high return-to-office rates like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and San Diego.

Uber One for Students

Uber is offering its Uber One membership program at a discount for college students. The program, which normally costs $9.99 per month, will be available to students for $4.99 a month. Students will also get access to free items and special deals from restaurants like Taco Bell, Domino’s, and Starbucks.

Uber Eats Lists

Uber is introducing a new feature called “Lists” to Uber Eats that allows users to curate and share lists of restaurants and go-to spots. Examples shared by the company include “date night desserts” and “toddler-approved” meals. This feature aims to enhance the user experience on the Uber Eats platform.
