Ride-hailing service Uber is making it easier for families to use one credit card for multiple accounts with its new Family Profiles feature.

On Wednesday, the company debuted the feature in Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix. It lets up to 10 Uber riders share the same credit card. Uber says it has been a popular request from customers.

“It’s a great way to help loved ones, friends or coworkers get where they want to go while you foot the bill,” says Uber’s blog post about the new feature.

 

To add “family members” to a credit card, organizing riders simply add others via their smartphones’ contacts in the Uber app’s settings tabs. Once additional family members have accepted requests to be added in their own Uber apps, organizing riders will start to receive a receipt for each ride others take as well.

Though the feature is starting only with three cities, Uber will likely roll out the new feature more broadly as it often does following initial tests.
