We all know that Uber rides vary, with some passengers preferring to ride in silence while the driver takes them from A to B.

Others may have sought life advice from their one-off chauffeurs, or enjoyed an unexpected comedy routine from the back seat.

Now, one Uber driver has taken the guesswork out of rides, by creating a conversation menu to provide customers with when they get into his car.

The “Ride type menu” offers five different ride options, from the “stand up” to the “therapy”.


The menu proved a hit with not only with Twitter user Luí, who originally shared the menu, but also hundreds of thousands of others.

Lui, who incidentally chose the “therapy” option during his own ride, told the Press Association that he found the driver “considerate and sweet”.

“My friends and I had just gotten out of the pub, and I called our Uber, and as soon as we entered his car he handed us this menu,” he said.

“We were so impressed that he would have something like that. It really shows he cares about his customer satisfaction because sometimes people don’t want to talk on Uber rides. He was being very considerate and sweet.”

What’s even better is that the Uber driver, whose name George, has since created a Twitter account to respond to his new viral fan base.

He has shared a number of posts on the account, including a selfie.
