Among others were the self-explanatory “Silent Ride”; “The Therapy Ride,” where the passenger can tell George whatever is on their mind; “The Creepy Ride”; and “The Rude Ride.”
In the end, the ride menu also reminded passengers to wear their seatbelt. Chargers are also available for every type of phone should a passenger need one.
The Twitter post has since gone viral, amassing over 540,000 favorites and almost 120,000 retweets since its time of posting.
The following day, Luis tweeted again, saying he has found the Twitter of George, the driver.
“My heart is filled with so much love right now, I’m happy George was able to see all the love he’s been getting,” wrote Luis. “He deserves it. So pure. I was merely the messenger. Much love @uber_george.”

George, whose full name is George Ure, has been driving for the ride-hailing company for about three months now, as per BuzzFeed News on March 4. He revealed that the idea for the ride type menu started off as a joke inside his head.
“People would come in [my car] and I would be like, ‘gosh, I should make a menu,’” he said in the report. “It’s one of those jokes that was like, ‘holy shit, that’s a really good idea.’”
George even consulted a chef friend of his for help in laying out his ride menu the way restaurants do, then printed out twenty copies to leave in his backseat.
“Those people by default are a silent ride,” George added. “If you don’t want to talk, that’s cool — I have social skills.” Cody Cepeda/JB
