Uber Introduces New Feature For Passengers Traveling with Pets

One of the downsides of being a pet owner without a vehicle at your disposal is that getting around in a pinch typically means you're at the mercy of someone willing to transport the two of you in good faith. Uber knows this can be tricky, and it's launching a new pilot, Uber Pet, to help ease this process for all involved parties—assuming everyone's on their best behavior.According to Uber, the latest offering will allow riders to "communicate to a driver that you'll be bringing a furry friend onboard your Uber trip."
