After the US, Australia, and New Zealand, Uber Pet has arrived in Hong Kong – and it was high time indeed! Casual travel with pets around Hong Kong has been all but impossible as taxi drivers decline driving pet-accompanied clients much more often than not, and the MTR has yet to introduce designated animal compartments and other pet-friendly policies.
Uber Pet is an in-app option developed with dogs and cats in mind, so your driver can, but doesn’t have to, refuse to take along another kind of animal. It is super straightforward – you open the app and type where you want to go; scroll through the ride options and choose Uber Pet; confirm your ride, and travel with your ride-or-die furry buddy. Unless your pet is a service animal, you will pay an extra HK$20 surcharge – a small price to pay for your best friend by your side.
At last, you get to explore the full scope of Hong Kong’s wonderful parks, count on a ride if you urgently need to get your four-legged friend to the vet, and finally adopt a furry companion without wondering how you’re supposed to transport them to their forever home!
Uber Pet is incredibly convenient, and a type of service that's long overdue. It will save us many a heartbreak as we finally have the option to give in to our pets' irresistible clinginess!
The many cat and dog owners of Hong Kong!
Riders with service animals don't have to choose Uber Pet, but Uber Assist or Uber Pet driver-partners are better equipped for the task.
