How To Contact Your Uber Driver Before They Pick You Up?

Were you standing on the wrong side of the road when your Uber showed up and the driver could not see you? You can simply click some icons in the Uber application and give them a call. Reaching out to your Uber driver on the phone is very simple whether you’re using the application on an iPhone or Android.

As soon as you have been paired with a ride and you are waiting for the car to appear, decide if you wish to send an SMS or call the driver directly. The latter option is always a safer choice when you have to contact them asap.
