Can I call Uber taxi without app?

Answered by Robert Dupre

It is possible to request an Uber ride without using the Uber app. Uber has a mobile website,, which allows you to book a ride online using your phone’s internet browser. This means that even if you have an older phone with internet browsing capabilities, a tablet, a laptop, or access to a public desktop computer with internet access, you can still request an Uber ride.

To request an Uber ride without the app, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the internet browser on your device.
2. Type in the address bar and press Enter.
3. The Uber mobile website will load, and you will be prompted to enter your location.
4. Enter your current location or allow the website to access your location automatically if your device supports it.
5. Next, you will need to enter your destination. You can either type in the address or choose from a list of suggested locations.
6. After entering your destination, the website will display the available Uber options in your area, along with the estimated wait time and cost for each option.
7. Select the type of Uber ride you prefer, such as UberX, UberXL, or Uber Black.
8. Once you have selected your ride option, you will be prompted to log in to your Uber account or create a new account if you don’t have one.
9. After logging in, you will need to confirm your pickup location and destination.
10. you can review the details of your ride and request the Uber.

It’s important to note that while you can request an Uber ride without using the app, you will still need an internet connection to access the Uber mobile website and complete the booking process. Additionally, some features available in the app may not be available on the mobile website.

Using the Uber mobile website can be a convenient option if you don’t have the app installed on your device or if you prefer to book a ride without using the app. It provides a user-friendly interface similar to the app, allowing you to easily request an Uber ride from your desired location.

While I personally haven’t had the need to request an Uber without the app, I can understand that there may be situations where it can be helpful. For example, if you are using a friend’s phone or a public computer and need to book a ride, accessing the Uber mobile website can be a viable option. It’s great to see that Uber provides alternative methods for requesting rides to accommodate different user needs.
