6 Ways to Contact Uber Customer Service

Tip #1: Contact Uber Customer Service Through the App

If you have any issues with your Uber account, a problem with a fare or one of your trips, or questions you can’t find on Uber’s support website, the best way to get support is by using Uber’s in-app support. You can also use the app to report a lost item.

Simply open your Uber App, click on ‘Account’ at the bottom and click on the ‘Help’ page in the top left corner. You will then have the option to chat with support or call support:

Tip #2: Contact Uber Customer Service via

Uber also has a robust online help section at Here, you’ll find a lot of good basic information whether you’re a rider, driver, eater (Uber Eats customer), or restaurant (Uber Eats partner).

The Uber website has much of the same functionality as the driver app, though, so if you prefer the app, you’re not missing out on anything. Make sure you click on “Driving & Delivering” to find driver support and specific answers to driver-related questions.

This is where you can get answers to questions about using the app, your account, and common phone or app issues.

I like going here for help because the people who write this content all work at Uber’s corporate office, and they carefully review everything that goes up on this page.

One really cool feature of this page is that when you log in and select a city, the site becomes personalized, and you can get help based on your specific account. You can then select specific trips for review or get custom-tailored help for your situation/city.

Tip #3: Visit an Uber Greenlight Hub

Uber offers in-person support at Greenlight Hubs across the country, some have long wait times, but the help you get here is the best out of any channels I’ve tried. Many locations allow appointments, which can reduce your wait time while helping solve your problem quickly.

You can try solving your problem yourself or calling customer support, but for complex issues, the Greenlight centers are the only ones who can help you.

You can search for your city’s office hours by checking your local Uber site (Google “[your city] Uber Greenlight Hub” to find the closest location to you), but here’s a list of some of the biggest cities that have Greenlight hubs:

  • San Francisco
  • Chicago
  • Los Angeles
  • Las Vegas
  • Toronto
  • Washington DC
  • New York City
  • Boston
  • Miami
  • Dallas

Is it worth it to visit an Uber Greenlight Hub?

Don’t take our word for it! Reader Cynthia [name changed to protect privacy] shared her excellent experience by going in person to a Hub below:

I actually did go to the Greenlight Hub in [California] on Saturday, and it was an unexpectedly pleasant experience.

The staff was friendly and responsive, and the general vibe of the Hub was very positive. The representative asked me repeated questions to ensure she accurately represented my case.

She took photos of all of my documentation and engaged me in drafting the email to her manager. She suggested that I refrain from contacting Uber Support by phone as they are a separate division, which could complicate the process.

She told me that in the past, she could contact drivers directly to let them know the status; however, Uber no longer allows this type of communication. I left feeling confident that I was heard and being given the consideration I had been requesting for a week.

It was basically the polar opposite of my experience with the phone customer service I received on Friday evening.

Tip #4: Contact Uber on Social Media

Uber is fairly responsive on Facebook and X, formerly Twitter. For support from Uber on X (Twitter), tweet at @Uber_support with your question or concern.

Keep it brief, as X requires, and don’t send too many messages for them to follow. Uber should get back to you within business hours via a “reply” or a direct message (DM).

Your comments can be public on Uber’s Facebook page, like X. This encourages companies to answer them promptly and completely.

Also, Uber now has Facebook Messenger support if you feel shy. I’ve used this a couple of times already and gotten pretty good support – it seems like they’re putting a lot of resources into this right now.

Remember, the more specific you can be when asking a question or presenting a concern, the more likely you will get a response from an actual human. It helps to have dates, times, and even dashcam footage of your concern or question so that Uber can respond.

You can also message Uber via LinkedIn or Instagram!

Tip #5: Uber Hotline

Critical Safety Response Line: 800-285-6172

This Uber customer service number is only for emergencies. Ensure all parties are safe, and call 911 first if you require immediate police or medical attention.

If you get into an accident while driving or experience a serious safety or security issue, this is the only time you should ever call this Uber driver number.  I added it to my phone as “Uber Telephone Number (Emergencies).”

Tip #6: Uber Helpline

24/7 Uber Phone Number: 800-593-7069

In 2016, Uber announced local phone support for San Francisco and eventually released it nationwide.

The 24/7 customer service Uber phone number is 800-593-7069, and while there’s usually a 1-2 minute wait to talk to a rep, the help you get here can be a bit hit or miss.

BONUS TIP: Find Your Answer On RSG

If you have a question, I’ve probably already answered it somewhere on the site or in an article, podcast, YouTube video, Q&A section, or all of the above.  I have a handy search function (magnifying glass) on the right-hand sidebar.

If you’ve searched the site and can’t find an answer to your question, feel free to e-mail me!  I still respond to every e-mail, so rest assured that you will get a human who knows what they’re talking about when you reach out to me.

Uber and Lyft don’t make it easy for new drivers to get help – that’s why I created The Rideshare Guide, your ultimate go-to guide for every Uber, Lyft, or rideshare question you could have. The Guide is based on my years as a driver and talking to and helping out drivers like you. Check it out here.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of questions work when calling Uber phone support?

The best questions for the Uber support line are ones demanding an immediate response. A perfect example is when my app suddenly stopped working. I would go online, and then it would immediately go offline. I tried rebooting, etc, and nothing helped, so I called tech support.

A few minutes later, I talked with a live person who understood my problem. She asked me to hold for a few minutes and then came back and said this was a problem they were aware of and were fixing. Interestingly enough, the problem fixed itself by the time she came back to me.

For reference, here is the Uber Customer Service Number: 800-593-7069

What types of questions don’t work when calling Uber phone support?

Questions that involve any specialized groups won’t work with phone support. If you need help from a special team, the best that happens when you call phone support is that they will open up a support ticket for you in the app.

It’s also questionable whether or not it’s a good idea to use the phone support system for anything that could get you in trouble or about policies.

For example, it is possible to ask them about the airport pickup regulations in your area. But if the person gets it wrong and you get in trouble, you will have no record of the answer they gave you.

You could be deactivated by doing something you were told to do over the phone. You might want to limit your phone support questions to things like “How do I set a driver destination filter?”

Does UberEATS have a customer support phone number?

Here is the UberEats Customer Service Number 1-800-253-9377.

Uber also offers UberEATS delivery support at 1-800-593-7069.

You can only call Uber while you’re out on delivery (so not after you have returned home and have an issue). You must contact Uber through the app if you have returned home and noticed something amiss with your delivery.

Is there an Uber phone number for riders?

If you have a problem with Uber as a passenger, the fastest way to contact Uber is to use their in-app support tool. Click on ‘Account’ in the bottom right corner, then ‘Help’ in the top left corner. You will then have the option to “Call Support” via the app.
