Can the driver go across the border? Say Niagara Falls or Detroit? Let's say the customer has all the documentation like passports to go either direction.
Can my Uber (or Lyft) driver cross the US border? Canada, Mexico, etc?
The Guru Take
It is up to the driver.
Uber and Lyft both do not openly allow drivers to drive across the border for legal and business reasons. There are questions that arise in terms of insurance and where Uber (and the driver) are authorized to "work."
(Both apps do allow you to enter destinations across the border, which can be taken as a tacit approval.)
Many drivers on cities near the border have indicated that they do cross the border for their customers, and this seems to be a common practice in cities like Detroit and Niagara Falls. Therefore, simply try asking the driver upon being matched up, and make sure to have your paperwork and documentation.
The passenger also be mindful that there may not be an Uber on the otherside of the border, so plan ahead!
