Si, señor! You can now officially request a Spanish-speaking UberX driver in six US cities. Previously launched in San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson, this option is now available in Los Angeles, Orange County and Chicago as well. Uber is hoping to cater to multicultural communities and travelers visiting the United States, and this seems like a great start.

Of course, you don’t have to be a native Spanish speaker to use the option — it could be really useful for students studying the language or anyone who wants to learn Spanish and is up for a challenge.

This new option is easy to use and free of charge (well, there’s no additional fee) — just follow these steps:

1. To unlock the ESPAÑOL option, open your app and enter the code UBERESPANOLLA in the “Promotions” section.
2. Toggle over to uberX in the vehicle menu, select the ESPAÑOL option, and request.
3. Experience your Uber ride with even more ease while speaking Spanish.

Do keep in mind that this new feature is limited to UberX for now, meaning you can’t use it with the company’s other ride tiers.

If you haven’t signed up for Uber, you can join here and get your first ride free (up to $20).
