TAMPA -- Tampa is one of five cities across the nation... and the only one in Florida... where pet owners are getting special attention from Uber.
The ridesharing service has launched Uber Pet... designed to make sure passengers don't get dumped by a driver who doesn't like animals.
Spokesperson Javi Correoso says Uber Pet lets passengers connect with drivers who are pre-screened to accept pets.
There's a four dollar surcharge; service animals ride free.
Uber is also testing the service in four other cities... Denver, Phoenix, Minneapolis and Jacksonville.
