Uber announced a slew of new family-friendly features at its annual Go/Get product showcase event. Uber Car Seat is one of the new features that'll help make rides go a lot smoother and allow parents to travel without a car seat.
Uber Car Seat is partnering with Nuna, a company that makes premium car seats, to let parents and caregivers reserve a car with a car seat. The Nuna RAVA car seats provided are forward-facing for a child who is at least 2 years old, 22 pounds, or 31 inches tall. A child is too big for the provided car seat if they weigh more than 48 pounds or are taller than 52 inches.
