BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 02: In this photo illustration, a woman uses the Uber app on an Samsung smartphone on September 2, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. Uber, an app that allows passenger to buy rides from drivers who do not have taxi permits, has had its UberPop freelance driver service banned in Germany after a complaint by Taxi Deutschland, a trade association of taxi drivers in the country. The company, which operates in 42 countries over 200 cities worldwide, plans to both appeal the decision made by a court in Frankfurt as well as, at the risk of heavy fines, continue its services in Germany until a final decision has been made on the matter.

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.
