2. Overview of Uber Taxi

Uber Taxi is a taxi dispatch app operated by Uber, an American company.

They offer dispatch services in over 450 cities across 63 countries, matching individuals with drivers of private vehicles, similar to Uber Eats.

In Japan, where taxis are regulated by a licensing system, Uber partners with taxi companies to provide a service where you can book and pay for taxis through the app.

3. Features of Uber Taxi

No more hailing taxis on the street.

With the Uber app, you can request a ride from local taxi companies at the tap of a button.

Uber Taxi adheres to the pricing of the matched taxi company, so the cost is the same as riding a regular taxi.

With coupons, you can use Uber Taxi at a lower cost than usual.

❶ Get to your destination faster

By using saved location information, you can set your destination and request a ride with one tap. This method is easier than saving contacts on your smartphone.

Save your destinations to make future ride requests to the same place easier.

❷ Easily split the fare with the app

When riding with friends or in a group, you can split the fare.

No need to exchange cash, as the app handles fare splitting from calculation to invoicing with simple operations, making it stress-free.

  1. After requesting a ride, swipe up from the bottom of the app and tap the payment method to select it.
  2. Tap [Split Fare].
  3. Enter the names or phone numbers of the passengers. An invitation notification will be sent to everyone added.

※ When splitting the fare, a fee of 24 yen per person is charged. The receipt will show the fare-splitting fees for all passengers.

❸ Share your ETA and current location

With simple operations, you can let loved ones know your estimated time of arrival and current location.

You can inform them of your precise arrival time for meetings, etc.

After requesting a ride, swipe the app screen and tap [Send Status].

Select up to 5 contacts from your registered contacts to notify about your ride status.

The selected recipients will receive a text message with a link showing the ride details.

Opening the link displays the driver’s name, vehicle information, and current location on the map.

4. Using Uber Taxi Economically

With Uber Taxi, you can choose from Uber Taxi, Uber Black, and Uber Black Van services.

Uber Black is a limousine service with a different pricing structure and higher rates than taxis, so use Uber Taxi for more affordable rides.

Uber Taxi fares follow the rates of each taxi company, and some companies set a 'dispatch fee' while others do not.

Dispatch fees are about 300-400 yen, so to save money, select taxis with no dispatch fee.

5. Payment Methods

❶ Credit & Debit Cards

Accepted credit cards for Uber Taxi are VISA, Mastercard, JCB, American Express, and Diners.

Debit cards can also be registered.

❷ Online Payments

Accepted online payment methods for Uber Taxi are PayPay and Uber Cash.

Payments can also be made via Apple Pay (iOS) and Google Pay (Android) using registered credit cards.

❸ Uber Cash

Uber Cash is electronic money usable for various Uber services, which becomes usable upon recharge.

There are five ways to recharge:

※ Pre-registering a credit or debit card allows for auto-recharge (automatic recharge of a set amount when the balance falls below 1,000 yen).

  1. Credit Card
  2. Debit Card
  3. Venmo
  4. PayPal
  5. Uber Gift (card type, online gift card)

❹ Cash Payment

While ride fares for Uber Taxi are primarily paid via card or electronic money, "cash payment" is also possible in some cities.

This makes Uber Taxi widely accessible to those who prefer or do not have a credit card.

Add cash payment easily with the following steps:

  1. Open the Uber app
  2. Tap "Payment"
  3. Tap "Add Payment Method"
  4. Tap "Cash" to complete

※ Ensure your payment method is set to "Cash" when taking the ride.

6. How to Use

The only things needed to register with the Uber app are an email address and mobile phone number.

You can request a ride through the browser or the Uber app.

❶ Request a Ride

Open the Uber app, tap Add Promo Code at the bottom of the Wallet, and enter the coupon code. Then enter your destination in the [Where to?] field.

Verify that the pick-up location and destination are correctly entered, select [Uber Taxi] at the bottom of the screen, and tap [Confirm Uber Taxi].

Once matched, the driver’s photo and vehicle details will be displayed, and you can track the driver’s arrival status on the map.

※ Coupons cannot be applied after the ride request is completed, so always enter the coupon first when using one..

❷ Ride

Get in the taxi when it arrives.

The driver knows the destination and the fastest route, but you can always request a specific route.

You can inform your friends or family of your current location and ride status. All operations can be done within the app.

❸ Exit

The Uber Taxi fare is automatically settled via your registered payment method, allowing you to exit immediately upon arrival.

7. Getting a Receipt

Upon completing the ride, a receipt will be automatically sent to the email address registered in your Uber account.

If you don’t receive the receipt via email, check your spam or junk folder. You can confirm or change the registered email address from the app menu by selecting [Settings].

All ride histories are stored in your Uber account. Here’s how to check the ride history:

■ How to check ride history in the app
