Uber has launched several new features for local drivers.
The new features announced are detailed below.
  • Arrival destination and time – Drivers can set the time they want to arrive at their final destination. They’ll then be connected with a trip along the same path.
  • Long trip notification – Drivers get an alert when a trip is estimated to be 45 minutes or longer.
  • No Thanks button – Drivers can decline a trip and the request will be passed to another driver sooner.
  • Rating protection – Drivers are protected from a low rating for reasons beyond their control, like an issue with the Uber App.
The launch of the new features follows the release of Uber’s cash trip notification, Social Connect, and the driver Share My Trip feature.
