Venmo will pave the way for Uber riders to split their fares

The ride-sharing company Uber Technologies Inc is making it easier for its customers to pay for rides by offering a new partnership with the mobile payment app Venmo.

Starting this week, Uber riders will be able to press a “Pay with Venmo” option as one of the methods when they hop into an Uber car.

Customers of UberEats, Uber’s food-delivery arm, can also pay for their deliveries with Venmo.

“With so many of our riders and eaters already turning to Venmo as a way to pay a friend back for that last ride or meal, we’re proud to have built a seamless, easy-to-use connection between our apps,” Marco Mahrus, Uber’s head of payment partnerships, said in a statement.

Additional payment methods accepted by Uber already include PayPal, which owns Venmo, and Apple Pay.

Adding Venmo to its suite of payment methods will pave the way for Uber riders to split fares as well as that service will be free with Venmo.

The ride-sharing behemoth is the biggest retailer to agree to take Venmo payments thus far.
