More than a ride

Ride safety is a priority for Uber, which is why the company is constantly working on new features within the app. Rides offered through Uber are provided by approved partners who must meet a number of requirements to join the platform. Additionally, the app offers passengers a number of safety features. Sharing rides with loved ones, PIN verification or security buttons are just a few of them.

*The promotional code is valid for 4 trips only during the promotion period and the maximum discount is 11 Lei per trip. The promotional code is not redeemable for cash and is only valid in Târgoviște. If the trip price is less than 11 Lei, the remaining amount cannot be changed to cash or credits.
