Uber is going to solve one of the major issues that riders face while sharing the rides with friends by adding a new feature to its app. Till now, the riders need to update the destination every time for each drop when riding with friends and requires multiple drops off. Consider you are coming back collectively with friends after party, you need to update the destination in the app for each drop.
To ease the process, Uber is adding a new feature to the app which let the user add multiple destinations at once. Now, there will be multiple drop options and you can add up to three destinations for the drops. You just need to add the destinations up to three locations or less instead of updating it for each drop. The company also ensured that there will be a full transparency on the fare in the system for both drivers and riders.
In order to use the feature, you just need to open the app and you will see a plus sign next to the “Where to?”. Tap the sign and you can add three more destinations to plan the multiple drops. You can also add and remove the destination during your ride or even modify the stops in real time. All the changes will be instantly received by the drivers in their app.
“So whether you're picking up friends en route or heading home from a night out, it's easier than ever to ride together”, Uber mentioned in a Statement.
The feature is a real help, especially for the people keep riding with friends and have multiple destinations for their drops. It's really annoying to keep adding the destination, particularly when your little tipsy and coming back from a party. With the multiple destinations features just have to sit back and relax without any worry. The feature will start rolling out globally from next week for the users.
Uber is constantly releasing a bunch of new features frequently as part of its “180 days of change” campaign. Recently it added the feature for the drivers which gave them more flexibility while waiting for the riders. The company is trying to eliminate any kind of a hassle and ease the process for both riders and drivers as well. However, still, some of the drivers in New York claim that they are being underpaid by the company.
