Who needs a car as a Sweet 16 gift when you can get access to your parents’ Uber account?

The ride-hailing service announced March 16 that it’s introducing Family Profiles that let up to 10 users bill their rides to a single shared credit card account.

The person organizing the family profile can find the option in the Settings menu and choose which other Uber (UBER) users to add to their profile. These other users’ rides will be billed to the organizer’s account.

Uber says the profiles can be used by any group of people, not just family members. The feature is launching first in Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix.
