My wife wants me to drive her to the airport today. I’m an UberX and UberXL. She doesn’t have the ride app but I do. She wants to expense it, but would rather have me as her driver. Is this possible?

    She needs to download the rider app. Have her sit in your car and request the ride. Most times it will go to you 1st if not just have her cancel immediately and try again. I've never had an issue doing this.   I have heard sometimes other drivers had to try a 2nd or 3rd time. If you are doing a promotion/quest just be careful as I heard (never did it) if Uber catches you having family members request & it helps you reach your specified number of trips they may not pay out that bonus. Again I never did it so its just what I've heard.

    There is no way to choose your driver explicitly.  You have to play the game where she requests the ride, and you try to catch it before someone else does. Not that hard to do though.

    Is she downloads the rider app and requests a ride while your app is turned on, you should be matched with her and you can pull this off. She would need to download the rider app first though!

    She doesn't have the rider app? I'm not sure how you could do it then. She has to request the ride somehow. You can't request a ride from yourself 😐
    She needs to make an uber account first.
