Can my girlfriend (spouse, friend, etc.) ride along with me on a Uber shift?
The Guru Take
No, not allowed. The enforcement is a different story.
No, you are not allowed to have somsone ride along with you on your shift. I used to see this in smaller towns with taxi drivers, but Uber does not allow this.
The primary reason is that your vehicle is being advertised for its capacity. If your UberX is advertising that it can take up to 4 cars (3 in the back and 1 in the front), you must have that capacity when you show up.
I hear often of drivers who bring their pets with them on the rides. This is also not allowed.
