How do I turn it on or off?
Visit your driving preferences and look for ‘Women+ Connect’ – you can toggle it on or off at any time. When turned on, Women+ Connect will match you with more women and nonbinary passengers.
Who has access to Women+ Connect?
Women+ Connect is currently only available to women and nonbinary drivers. If you identify as a woman or nonbinary and need to update your gender, visit your profile and tap ‘Gender.' Please note that submitting untrue information may lead to account suspension or deactivation.
What does nonbinary mean?
“Nonbinary” refers to people who identify outside of the “binary” genders, man or woman.
Will I still be matched with men?
Yes, it’s possible. When Women+ Connect is turned on, we’ll do our best to match women and nonbinary drivers and riders. However, in order to help you always get a ride there are times where you’ll be matched with men.
Will opting into Women+ Connect lead to longer wait times to get matched or less ride demand?
No, your wait times and ride demand should not change if you are opted into Women+ Connect.
