As a dog owner (my pup Matilda is pictured below) I'm very excited about a new Uber feature launching today in Philly: Uber Pet.
It's an official way to bring your dog, cat, lizard??? along for an Uber ride without the hassle of having to contact your driver beforehand and praying they don't cancel on you. For a $3-$5 surcharge you can snag a ride with your pet all official-like, with a driver who has opted in to offer rides to people and their pets.
For now Uber Pet is NOT available everywhere, we're one of seven lucky cities where Uber has launched the pilot program including Austin, Denver, Nashville, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Phoenix, and Tampa Bay.
Do you think you'll make use of the new feature?
