Uber family Plan

Uber, the ride sharing service, announced Wednesday that it would be testing a new payment system that would allow one person, or business, to pay for the rides of up to 10 other people. The test will take place in Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix. The person who wants to be responsible for paying for all those rides sends invites through the app to everyone he or she wants to add to their plan. Once that invitation is accepted, all future Uber rides will be billed directly to the organizer, who will receive a receipt for every ride.

The idea came from feedback from riders who wanted a way to consolidate trip payments under one account, Uber says.
