United Airlines just became the first airline to offer customers Uber transportation services via its mobile app, enabling travelers to use the United app for services throughout their entire travel experience.
Customers with iOS and Android mobile devices can access Uber ground transportation information in the United app’s menu or in the “My Reservations” card with a current reservation. The app will display Uber information, including types of available vehicles, estimated wait times and prices. After customers select a ride, the United app will automatically transfer them to the Uber app or the Uber website to sign up for an account to complete the transaction.
Customers who sign up for Uber via the United app and complete their first transaction will receive 1,000 MileagePlus award miles for a limited time. Or you can use this referral link to get $5 off your first ride (and I get $5 off my next ride for referring you!).
