I was trying to book a cab from my mobile app while using Vodafone 2G and realized that things were going very slow, that is when I realized that I should try it from my computer which was connected to a LAN.
Following are the steps with screenshots which will help you book an UBER cab quickly:
STEP 1: Go to https://m.uber.com/
STEP 2: Enter your Uber credentials and tap on Done button (top right corner; refer previous screenshot)
Quick Tip: If you sign up from Uber mobile app, you can use your PAYTM wallet for authentication instead of providing any credit card details.
STEP 3: Click on the the PICKUP LOCATION text circled in the screenshot below to be able to search your pick up location.
STEP 4: Type in the location details in the search box and choose the desired option from the dropdown.
STEP 5: Use the slider available at the bottom to choose the kind of cab you need and then click on “Set Pickup Location”
STEP 6: Make sure that the pick up location is correct and the use credits option is checked or un-checked as per your requirement and then click on “Request pickup here XXXX” button.
NOTE: Make sure that you do this only when you are ready for the cab. If you try to cancel your request after 5 mins, you will have to pay some amount. Also, if you keep the driver waiting you will be charged accordingly.
STEP 7: (OPTIONAL) In case you need to cancel a request, this screenshot will help you find the option quickly. The option is available at the bottom right corner on clicking which you will get a menu. Select “Cancel Trip” to cancel your request.
