CLEAR and Uber Partner to Offer “Home to Gate” App Integration
CLEAR and Uber have announced a partnership that will integrate Uber’s ride platform directly into the CLEAR app’s “Home to Gate” feature. With this partnership, CLEAR app users will be able to use the Home To Gate feature to find out exactly when to leave for their flight and reserve an Uber ride ahead of time. This new option promises to create a more seamless, predictable travel experience.
CLEAR’s free Home to Gate in-app feature analyzes traffic data, security screening wait times, and airport walking distance in the terminal to tell you when to leave your home or hotel and arrive at your gate on time for take off. The integration with Uber will further improve that experience by allowing you to reserve an Uber ride ahead of time with just a tap.
“Travel is surging back this holiday season, and together with Uber, we are helping travelers have a more predictable and stress-free travel experience,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of CLEAR. “Home To Gate is the next step in our mission to create frictionless experiences and we are proud to have Uber along for the ride.”
Home To Gate is a free feature within the free CLEAR app and does not require a CLEAR Plus membership to use. Subscribing CLEAR Plus members are able to access CLEAR’s nationwide network of 100+ expedited security lanes across 39 airports as well as other member benefits. The paid service costs $179 per year, but you can now get CLEAR for free if you have an Amex Business Platinum Card.
How It Works
Here’s how to use this new feature:
- Open: Open the free CLEAR App and tap the “Home to Gate” tile
- Predict: Share your location and flight details, and using data driven insights, Home To Gate will tell you the best time to leave for your flight
- Reserve: Tap the “Get A Ride With Uber ” button and the Uber app will have a ride reservation ready to go with all your trip details, creating a simple and easy travel experience.
