How do I turn it on or off?
Women and nonbinary passengers are automatically opted-in to Women+ Connect. To change your preferences:
  1. Open the menu icon in the top-left corner.
  2. Tap 'View profile.'
  3. Tap the pencil icon in the top-right corner.
  4. Tap 'Gender.'
  5. At the bottom of this page, look for a toggle that says ‘Women+ Connect’.
You can turn this on or off at any time. When turned on, Women+ Connect will allow you to be matched with more women and nonbinary drivers.
Who has access to Women+ Connect?
Women+ Connect is currently only available to women and nonbinary riders. If you identify as a woman or nonbinary and need to update your gender, visit your profile and tap ‘Gender’. Please note that the submission of 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?
No, your wait time should not change if you have opted into Women+ Connect.
