Uber is testing a feature that allows users to match with drivers who welcome four-legged riders.

It’s called Uber Pet, and it’s debuting in seven cities, VenureBeat reports. The cities are Austin, Denver, Nashville, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tampa Bay.

Riders using the feature, which will be visible within the app, will pay an extra $3 to $5, according to VentureBeat.

Until now, Uber drivers have been required to accept service dogs but have otherwise had discretion as to whether to accept pets.

CBS Philly writes that “drivers who agree to pick up riders with pets will receive a portion of the surcharge, on top of their base fare earnings.”

VentureBeat notes that with the service, the company is “looking to smooth the communications process between riders and drivers regarding pet transport.”
